I found this on the facebook page of the Algerian Air Force. Would they dream of an aircraft carrier ?
It shows a Su-33 wearing Algerian roundels on a Kuznetsov class aircraft carrier.

USS Lexington (CV-2).

USS Yorktown (CV-10) passing through the Panama Canal. July 1943

USS Ticonderoga (CV-14) fitting out at Newport News on April 22, 1944. She had been laid down under the name Hancock barely 14 months previously, an astonishing build time for a fleet carrier.
A name swap with CV-19, then building at the Fore River Shipyard at Quincy, MA occurred. This renaming was done in response to an offer from the John Hancock Life Insurance Company to conduct a special bond drive to raise money for the ship if that name was used.
HMAS Sydney (R17) on the day of her commission at Devonport Dockyard, UK where she was built on December 16, 1948. The RAN's first aircraft carrier, she had originally been laid down as Terrible, a Majestic class light fleet carrier for the RN.

Sydney would serve with distinction until the more modern HMAS Melbourne (R21) replaced her in 1955 when she was placed in reserve. She would later be reactivated in 1962 as a fast troop transport for the Vietnam War and was decommissioned for the last time on November 12, 1973.
