INS Viraat (HMS Hermes) to remain in service until 2018

An interesting rumour from the subcontinent:

Her keel was laid at Vickers (Barrow) on 21 June 1944. Think about that for a minute. Nineteen forty four. By 2018, that’s going to be 74-years. They certainly don’t build them like that any more!

INS Viraat, the oldest aircraft carrier in service anywhere in the world.

HMS Hermes, as she was during the Falklands War, 1982.
