QE2 for scrap?

Press reports are suggestion QE2 has been sold for scrap in China. The ship was initially sold to Dubai but the plans to make her into a hotel have stalled with the economic downturn. It appears the recent bid to return to the UK as a hotel on the Thames have come too late for this classic liner.  

For the press story see - End of an era for the QE2.

Here is the last transatlantic liner departing Southampton bound for New York on 10 October 2008, her final crossing.
