I hear it's being decommissioned, is that right?

Yes mate. Very soon by all accounts. She is almost 20 years old and that's about the life span of a ship now.

Just been looking at this great thread (again)
I noticed the shadow of the helicopter that obviously took the photo of HMS Eagle.

That is a fantastic picture. More air power on one flight deck than we have in the whole of the FAA now.
I would think that that is the shadow of a Wessex Mk1.

Crying shame the way our navy has been run down.
