Another great icon comes to a sad end..

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4962959/hms-ark-royal-sails-into-turkey-ahead-of-being-scr...
The ark royal is being scrapped.. and not even in the motherland! This ship was an icon of the navy and should have been preserved for future generations but no... sell it and let it be cut up for scrap is the governments way yet again.
This is one of three ships that changed the worlds view on our ingenuity. Helicopter carriers could fight wars with HARRIERS being flung off the deck! Now it's going to be turned into fridges, freezers, pet food tins...
Nice one Mr Camoron!
