Nineveh and Tyre

Came across this in a blog (Never Yet Melted).

Who'dda thunk it, that one would be able to buy an aircraft carrier online. One previous owner, price on request. Remember folks, closing dates the 5th of January so if you are considering this, then best not to push the boat out (Har-har) over Christmas. 

Britain's remaining aircraft carrier, The Ark Royal, was recently decommissioned and its auctioning off its mothballed surface ships for scrap. All a far cry from the days of ruling the waves. We'd better get prepared to refer to the Falklands as Las Malvinas someday.
