The Royal Navy’s former aircraft carrier Illustrious will leave Portsmouth today as HMS Queen Elizabeth nears her arrival into the city.

 

The former HMS Illustrious will be saluted by onlookers at Portsmouth’s Round Tower as she leaves the harbour after a career spanning 32 years and more than 900,000 nautical miles.

 

Commissioned in 1982 for the successful campaign to liberate the Falkland Islands, she took part in a range of operations until 2014, including evacuating Britons from Lebanon in 2006 and delivering humanitarian aid after Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines in 2013.

It is a sad day to see them go like this to a Scrapyard leaving the UK with no Aircraft Carriers until the new ones come into service.

 

It will be emotional time for all those that served on them.

 

I Salute them all.
