HMS INVINCIBLE was photographed leaving Portsmouth for the last time on 24th March 2011. Towed by the tug SIROCCO, she was destined for the breakers yard at Aliaga in Turkey. Her sister HMS ARK ROYAL followed her to the same ship dismantlers in May 2013.

 

She saw action in the Falklands War when she was deployed with HMS HERMES  and took over as flagship the Royal Navy when Hermes was sold to India. Invincible was also deployed in the Yugoslav Wars and the Second Gulf (Iraq) War. In 2005, she was decommissioned

 

Note the increased ski-jump angle compared to her original configuration. Note also the reshaped bow, with a raised bulwark and the anchors no longer recessed. By the end of their careers all three Invincible class ships had also lost their Sea Dart missile system, the area being plated over to provide greater parking area for aircraft - the forward flightdeck extension can be seen projecting from the starboard bow.
