From Russia with Love (1963) is the second James Bond movie, starring Sean Connery as James Bond. While most non-studio scenes were filmed in Turkey, the famous boat chase was filmed in Scotland.

Delos[edit | edit source]

The ship serving as the floating SPECTRE headquarters is actually the 'MV Aurora', named 'Delos' during the time of filming. She was owned by the Greek Nomikos line. Built in 1955 by the German Blohm & Voss company in Hamburg, she was named 'Wappen von Hamburg' until being sold to Greece. Before getting her current name in 2009, the name changed several times. The Aurora is currently located in Stockton, California, where she is under restoration. The IMO number is 5088227
