    Kong Olav - A legend vessel still around even though on artificial life support.

    Continuing this thread: http://captainsvoyage.7.forumer.com/...?t=437&start=0

    Just checked Google Earth to spot good old Kong Olav.

    There she is:




    I wish so much Hurtigruten would buy her back...

      I just compared the actual picture on this position with the last one we had in our old forum - spotted by Jan-Olav. Now it is a new one, but i don't know how old. It is very different, where and when they do updates. F.e. there is a garden near our place, where a party is shown we joined two years ago. You can identify the cars of the visitors...

        I agree with you, Ralf!

        I would like soooo much that HURTIGRUTEN - or an other interessent in Norway - would buy KONG OLAV bak!! I have travelt with this skip from 1969 to 1997 and can not forget our KONGEN! Akkurat one year ago (02.02.2008) I have seen Jan-Olavs pictures about KONG OLAV for the first time and found her via Google-earth on the position: 9-57-04N, 98-33-11E!! Riesenfreude!!
        I have written same letters both to HURTIGRUTEN in Hamburg og Narvik, also to NRK, Aftenposten/Oslo, Bergens Tidende/Bergen and Stavanger Aftenblad, (in Norwegian language), but I did not get any answer. Keine Rettung für KONG OLAV ???

            Just realized that I still have thousands of additional images of the Kong Olav which was taken in Burma back in 2007. If there is still some interest, I can try to make a plan to have them prepared and placed onto this forum for all your enjoyment.

                          Please DO NOT forget to sign the petition mentioned a few posts back, if you haven't done so already.

                          Here are some additional memories of the former King: Kong Olav as a postcard:

                            I would really love it if the number of signatures on this list would exceed 100 or even 1000.... what do you say, dear members... shall we give her a chance and spread the word across the world?

                            Tell your friends, your colleagues and your family to sign their name on this petition.

                            Time is really running out....

                              If there is still some interest,
                              What kind of question is that...?!!!???!!!

                              I belive most of us can't wait to see your "pictureshow"...!!!!

                              and THANK YOU for calling the country BURMA, not Myanmar.....
                              There are only the dictators in that country, others who might think like them and CNN that use Myanmar.

                              All in favour of democracy and a free human mind use Burma, as the liberty fighters wants us to do.

                              (And wooooops, ther we go OT again.......).
