    now being rendered down to a heap of scrap metal in Turkey
    massive amount of the Ark has been demolsihed in three months flat

    the third carrier Illustrious has just been put up for sale
    The Ark and Invincible went for £3million ... barely the price of a new 30m whitefish boat!!!
    would make a good offshore support heavy repair, consumables warehousingand heiicopters base for worldwide offshore service IMO
