The financial crash of 2008 was the root cause of the Harriers demise the most capable jet in the RAF at that time. Its only downfall being there were not enough of them. If you take the cold fact that it was either Harrier or Tornado that had to be cut to ease the financial burden on the Ministry of Defence. Then Harrier was the logicalchoice as the force had been slimmed to a point where sustained operations overseas had become impossible. Had the axe not fallen it is quite possible that Harrier would still be in service today. This book takes a look at the service of Cottesmores Harriers and explains the end of days. The story includes the squadrons - the operations - exercises and carrieroperations as well as combat. The Harriers that served at the airfield are highlighted each with a full-page portrait and a brief history.
