HMS Illustrious is the second of three Invincible Class Aircraft carriers, and the fifth ship to bear her proud name. Illustrious, or 'Lusty' as she is known fondly by all on board, was built at Swan Hunters Ship Builders Yard on the Tyne, and subsequently commissioned in her base port of Portsmouth in 1982.
