HMS Illustrious anchored in Plymouth Sound. Illustrious is Britain's last remaining aircraft carrier after the withdrawal of Ark Royal and Invincible. Since the withdrawal of the Harrier GR9, we have no fighter aircraft to operate from the ship, so it has been converted to operate helicopters instead. It is due to be retired in 2014, with the replacement, HMS Queen Elizabeth, due to enter service in 2020.
It could be an interesting few years.
