The replica ship DISCOVERY is hoisted by a crane in before being loaded onto the British Royal Fleet Auxiliary Ship FORT ROSALIE (A385) at Naval Station Norfolk, Va., on Oct. 2, 2006 for transport to the United Kingdom. DISCOVERY will be the center-piece of a major tour promoting the 400th anniversary of the settlement in Jamestown, Va. A"fly-boat"of the British East India Company, DISCOVERY was the smallest of three ships that took part in the voyage from London to the new colony of Virginia, leading to the founding of Jamestown in 1607.
