I think that is an AV8-B?
I thought the easiest way to tell was that the Harriers had landing gear mounted on the wing tips but the AV8 had them mounted mid wing position

?

Come and see us for the weekend. Probably a total of around 80 warbird/military aircraft on site and around 4 hours of flight time!

Whats the difference between god and a pilot?








God doesn't think he's a pilot.

Same plane. The earlier version with the tip mounted gear was the Hawker Siddeley Harrier. The second version was the AV8B Harrier II.

A VASI or PAPI would be nice there! Are you a little low? Or is it just that type of visual picture that would make me come in steep?

I can't see your pic at work. I assume it's a shot of an airshow brochure. When and where? My brother is down in Melbourne. Me may want to take his son.

Not me flying......Runway is 1700 ft long so do what you gotta do. The plane is a Cardinal. He is over the powerlines and landed long of the numbers......At one time there was a VASI on 34 but some one took it out. Not sure if airplane of mower that took it out, before my time, but VASI puts you 500' down the runway.....

The place I work at has a railway line on an embankment and a 50 ravine with a stream at the other end.



Getting this in and out was...................... interesting.
