Aircraft Photos of BAe Harrier


Aircraft pictures of British Aerospace Harrier

Tributes were paid to the joint force of Royal Navy and RAF Harrier aircraft on 15 December 2010 as a spectacular flypast across eastern England marked the Harrier aircraft retirement after 41 years of service. A formation of 16 Harriers took to the skies over Lincolnshire, flying over seven RAF bases, Lincoln Cathedral and the towns of Stamford and Oakham.

Brought into service in 1969 and based at RAF Wittering, this British aircraft was designed to take off and land both vertically and on a short runway. Well known for its role in the Falklands War, the Harrier went on to serve in many other conflicts including in Bosnia and Iraq in the 1990s.

The RAF and Royal Navy Harrier squadrons joined forces in 2000 to form Joint Force Harrier, based at RAF Cottesmore. These combined Harrier squadrons went on to serve in Sierra Leone, the second Gulf War and most recently Afghanistan. In 2009 the aircraft celebrated its 40th anniversary as the Harrier squadrons flew home after five years in Afghanistan.
