The last on the move British aircraft carrier was sold to the Turkish company for 2 million pounds (about $ 2.5 million). The ship left the port of Plymouth. It is now going towards Turkey.

British Armed Forces have been remaining without any aircraft carriers for two years. This ship was removed from the army after 32 years of service in 2014. Moreover, the next 10 years the United Kingdom will not be able to have their own ships of such class. The construction of two aircraft carriers - the "Queen Elizabeth" and "Prince of Wales" is continued, but it would not be soon completed.
