Judge Kimba Wood thought the offer of a Harrier jet in Leonard v. Pepsico. Inc. 88 F. Supp. 2d 116, (S.D.N.Y. 1999), aff'd 210 F.3d 88 (2d Cir. 2000),was a joke, but this one's not.  The British government is selling HMS Invincible, a veteran of the Falklands War and the former flagship of the Royal Navy. It's got a cruising range of 7,000 nautical miles, room for a crew of 1,051, and can carry 18 GR7/9 Harriers for offensive punch and 4 Sea King ASaC helicopters.to deal with those pesky submarines.

It's being sold by the Disposal Services Authority through tenders over the internet at the an on-line auction site edisposals.com.  Tender closing date is January 5, 2011.

Price does not include aircraft, fuel, or ammunition.  Other terms and conditions apply.  See site for details.
