Hi
Looking at gmaps satellite view there are some JSFs and further southwest than this view there are some Hawks, BUT it seems we still have some Sea Harriers if Queen Elizabeth needs fixed wing urgently. Cool

I remember going to the RR engine factory at Filton on a college trip in the 80's...they were working loads of OT, as many non sea prepped Harriers had been deployed to the Falklands and their engines had salt damage, so loads of rebuild work.

Image dates from 2009 according to Google Earth. The latest image (25/5/2017) shows two remaining but no sign of 'life', sadly the area looks more 'disposal' than 'dispersal'.
