HMS Illustrious

Wanna buy an aircraft carrier?

HMS Illustrious is due to retire in late 2014 after 32 years of distinguished service that has seen her involved in operations around the world.

With the announcement that the 22,000-ton ship will be preserved in some form, the UK’s Ministry of Defence is now inviting private companies, charities and trusts who are interested in buying the HMS Illustrious to come forward with ideas for her future use.
