RAF Harriers: Gone, but not forgotten..

Just a small tribute to the aviation legend that hovered in the british skies for almost half a century. Can't believe they're all gone now, it's hard to think of them as nostalgia; I guess that's how it goes these days!

Lovely set of photos :clap: :clap:

I'm puzzled by something on this subject..... what exactly has happened to them all at Cottesmore? Normally when a type has retired we see all sorts of movements by air / road to final destinations etc...

I haven't heard a thing since they retired.... have they just been mothballed in the hangars at Cottesmore and the hangars shut and left? Surely not.... I can't help thinking there's something going on by way of reserve contingency plan or the like. :question:

Stashed in hangers and kept active/live for possible future sale according to AFM.
