No tankers). (Nick Challoner) One of the FA2 trials aircraft during July 1992. A Sidewinder acquisition round is on the outboard pylon. Noteworthy is the the pitot tube beneath the RWR antenna on the vertical stabilizer. The pitot was moved from its nose location to the tail during the FA2 conversion, although normally the pitot is much longer. (Nick Challoner) BOEING/BAe HARRIER 57 penser. At the same time, Marconi Sky Shadow jamming pods (the same as normally carried by Tornado GR1 s) were repackaged into the shells of Harrier cannon pods, allowing the Harrier to carry a jammer without taking up a valuable weapons pylons (the cannon not being used too often).

The two small UHF antennas behind the cockpit were shared with the RAF's GR7I3, even though the radio attached to them was different. Another UHF antenna is flush mounted on the lower forward part of the tail. (Jim Tunney via the Mick Roth Collection) BOEING/BAe HARRIER 4S Here is an AV-8A in subdued markings. All eight of the pressure relief doors are open, as is the canopy (probably because the photo was taken at NAF Fallon where it is hot, and the Harrier's air conditioning was marginal, at best).

Keith McCutcheon during late 1967. McCutcheon was impressed enough to send two pilots, Col. Tom Miller and LtCol. Bud Baker, to observe the Harrier at the 1968 SBAC Show at Farnborough, and within two weeks the pair had arranged to fly Harriers at Dunsfold. The two pilots had several complaints about the Harrier - brake chatter during taxi, tailplane vibration at low speed, the need to remove the wing in order to service the engine, and generally poor rearward visibility. But overall they were impressed, and they returned to Washington full of enthusiasm for the new aircraft.
