Don't worry, the cost of flying the parts around the world because it's ****ed, alongside somewhere, will easily gobble up the savings made!!!! Do you people know nothing of the current "cough" cost effective (for the contractor) CLS system currently in place?
You only have to read into the cost of running the Tristar replacement. One of Gordon browns classics. I believe £1.7 million a day, and they don't even own them!

That will be the famed 'Voyager', that doesn't actually 'voyage' very far out of Brize (due to the crabs being cox!) ... leaving our troops stranded in Minhad and Kandahar ... oh yes, what a revelation that has turned out to be!!!!
The MoD also have to pay the "company" that own them if they receive AAR from another source. Also if they are not being used by the crabs they can be used to take chavs to Ibiza. Great PFA contract from the one eyed loon!

first have to retrieve them from the US
Their all over the UK in salvage yards. 2 at Cottesmore, one on the main gate at VL, a load on the dummy deck at CU. So it would be difficult but not as difficult as retrieving the bits of the GR's sold for spares!

Are you talking about the Sea Harrier or the GR7/9s?

Sea Harriers as alluded to in the post :) all the GR 9 & 9A were scrapped and shipped out to the states. The mighty Shar would only have been any use to Sea Harrier operators and it was a different beast to the GR. Not made out of plastic for a start :)

I love it when these threads drift.
