Re: Sea Harrier at Pensacola 1986

ZD609 L-122 Sea Harrier FRS.1 880 Sq Wheels Up landing on 5/11/86

ZD609 was apparently w/o in Chepstow , Wales 5/10/1991 so the second part of the story may be bogus .

I read somewhere that the AH-1 , UH-1 and UH-60 will all fit in a C-130 with the rotor head assembly removed , but an SH-60 Seahawk apparently does not fit .

I was just wondering what would be used for AAR ,when the F-35 is embarked on the QE or POW? I saw a video of a USMC AV-8B refuelling a F-35 ,so is there a possibility of the RN & RAF using the Harrier for the same job?Just wondering.

Cheers Phil
No , we don't have any Harriers anymore .
