Only Italy, India and some USNavy had Harriers if not mistaken? Performance at war was always excellent, Falklands, GulfWars and Balkan Crisis ...
It is a pity as this one of wonder of technology would be history from now on ... hope RAF will donate or at least 'sell' one to our MAM one day!

Now that its gone from service ....building the Invincible with the legendary Sea Harriers and Seakings will be a much dedicated project which I will enjoy even more
