My apologies @F.L. I didn't read the caption on your first image correctly
"The centre piece of the military themed displays at Oriental Land, this 'aircraft carrier' is in fact a building built into an artificial lake that resembles an aircraft carrier, rather than being an actual ship"
Invincible class aircraft carrier ILLUSTRIOUS fitting out at Swan Hunter shipyard on May 18, 1982. The yard workers pulled out all the stops to send the ship off to the Falklands ASAP. She left the yard 3 months ahead of schedule but arrived in the South Atlantic after the Argentine surrender.
