The decommissioned British aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal has finished her 22 day voyage from Portsmouth to Aliağa and reached her final destination.

She was bought by Turkish scrapyard Leyal for 10 million TL (aproximately 3.400.000,- GBP and 5.280.000,- USD). This company has quite an expertise in scrapping warships: HMS Invincible, HMS Cardiff, HMS Newcastle, HMS Glasgow, HMS Exeter, HMS Southampton, HMS Nottingham, RFA Oakleaf , RFA Bayleaf, RFA Forg George  and German destroyer Rommel.
