a small snippet from above

One such pilot was Sir Peter Squire, former Chief of the Air Staff. Sir Peter led 1 (Fighter) Squadron during the Falklands campaign in 1982. He first flew the Harrier in 1975 and has flown all major variants of Harrier since.

Sir Peter Squire said:

"I always wanted to maintain the Harrier. It's THE aeroplane - it was beautifully harmonised. The Hunter was a joy to fix, but the Harrier did it all - thats why we had the best engineers on 801."

Thought most of the Wafu branch had big heads.. The heads on 4 Deck W section of the old Ark were quite monstrous. The trap doors however were something else :D
