Harrier GR3

Hi all,

Seen going into Marham on the back of a low-loader was a bare metal Harrier GR3 with an GR1 nose cone fitted. I have it on good authority it is XV741 in for paint.

Should be from Thorpe Wood N Yorks. That company that revamps old airframes to resell for static display. Has it been sold now? Guess they got a good deal with the Paintshop there - wont be much Tornado work now I would imagine...

I'm hoping that a couple may be painted up to commemorate the Tornados RAF service, as I'm assuming that there's only the Marham black tail left.

If its XV741 from Jet Art, then I assume it will be going back to the colours it had during the 1969 Transatlantic Air Race, which it won.
