An aircraft carrier of the Brazilian army was put on sale on eBay!

HMS Vengeance was built for the Royal Navy in 1945, this aircraft carrier of the Colossus class was exploited by the latter then by the Royal Australian Navy for a short time. It was later purchased by the Brazilian Navy that used it from 1960 to 2001 under the name NAeL Minas Gerais.

In 2001, it became the oldest operational aircraft carrier in the world and in November of the same year it was taken out of service and was replaced by a new aircraft carrier.

What is amazing about this carrier is that after its decommission, the Nael Minas Gerais was put for sale on eBay for 7 million dollars by a shipbroker but was quickly removed from the website a few days later under rules prohibiting the sale of military materials.
