D'you know what? I'll cause offence. Harrier: £3945 per flying hour (marginal cost apparently), per a/c. That's £47k per hour that IMHO would be better directed elsewhere. There are hidden benefits of course - less upset aircrew perhaps, but this sort of thing is at best difficult to justify while MoD budgets are stretched to breaking point and beyond.
