The aircraft carrier seen in this photo is the brazillian´s "A-11 Minas Gerais", broken in 2004.

"Minas" can be seen in Rio de Janeiro´s Naval Base here:

In this photo "Minas" is in front of "A-12 São Paulo" (ex-French ship "Foch"), before he went to India to be broken

Wow, high res at last! I saw a documentary about this place on Discovery HD Theater and I've been wanting to see just how big of an operation it is. What a sad situation for the people whose only option is to work here.

I just read "The Outlaw Sea" by William Langeswiesche. A good study of the politics at sea including a narrative of the "recyclers" of Alang Beach.
