  2. Typical Crab PR, youve added that bit about Naval Services on your thread!!!!!! I presume this is only aimed at the crabs? Maybe this thread should stay on E-Goat?
  3. Wittering? Home of the harrier? How very dare they.......
  4. I thought it was home to Expeditionary Ops!!! The harrier is just lodging from Cottesmore?
  5. Yeovil is it's true home........ :cry:
  6. Think I might be washing my hair that day, or getting far away! I presume there will be a flying display? as I live behind the God forsaken place its prob a good day to take the wife shopping.
  7. Harrier 40th Anniversary Update

    The website for registering your interest in attending the Harrier 40th celebrations is now operational:


    These events are open to everyone who served on a Harrier Squadron, in any service and in any capacity, along with all those who helped in the aircraft's development and continued success today.
  8. There'll be no one at Cottesmore for that, we'll all still be in Afghanistan waiting for the Tonka faggots to sort their sh1t out.
  9. What about "Sea" Harrier squadron. I feel the website is lacking a few basic points. Again geared around our sideways walking chums!!!!
  10. Haven't flown nor maintained that amazing aircraft, but served onboard Bulwark in the 60s when Bill Bedford from Boscombe Down landed the 'kestrel' as it was known then, on the deck. Must go down as one of the most exciting moments of my 'baby sparker' days !! I think it was originally the P1127 back then.
  11. Would just like to bump this topic up, its going to be a worthwhile event and any "profit" from any sales etc will be going back into various charities. It is open to all Engineers and pilots who have worked on the Harrier.
