Could you not do what the Russkies used to do, and tow some balsa wood replicas behind them to make it look like we've got more that we actually have..? :wink:

Classic!!

Local newspaper the Stamford "Closet Crab PR" Mercury has a front page shocker about the Harriers leaving Cott/Witt, however they have stuck a photo of an 801 Squadron "Sea" Harrier on it!!!!

Top level whinging in next weeks copy from the local side scuttlers I think!!!!!

Harriers pay 'emotional' farewell to Yeovilton
Navy News 25 Nov 2010 said:
IF EVER there’s a moment to bring one of Britain’s busiest airfields to a grinding halt it is this. Flying low over RNAS Yeovilton this is the last time anyone there will see naval airmen from a naval air squadron flying a jet for a decade...

...Watching was Cdr Danny Stembridge – Yeovilton’s Executive Officer and the man earmarked to take over 800 NAS until the jump jets were axed under October’s defence review. “I’ve spent the last 20 years flying, predominantly from the sea,†he said. “To think that for the first time in 100 years we are not going to be able to do that is sad.â€

The Harrier fleet is being retired seven years ahead of schedule; its successor, the Joint Strike Fighter won’t appear on the scene till the end of the decade – although the carriers they will operate from, HMS Queen Elizabeth and Prince of Wales, are due to enter service from the middle of the decade...
