    Seems not Marco ... I think it's the result of frustration, everyone gets that I guess, british pilots are not robots so I guess they showed off their final thought ...

    sorry the break the eggs in the basket, but Marco is right that this picture is fake, but anyway i think that it still delivers the message. Moreover the last flight past was made of 16 aircraft not 40+ !!!

    I think Marco & JF are right Twisted Evil

    Yet as JF said, to whoever decided to ground the Harrier he/she/they deserved MUCH WORSE than a simple F*** OFF Laughing

    I don;t know, it is a very old aircraft now but i don;t see any other replacing it in its role. The vertical take off capability has not been developed any further, it is like it is not required any longer. Such a unique and beautiful aircraft.
