Sea Harrier Due

The arrival of a new aircraft is always exciting news and we are very pleased to announce that FRS2 Sea Harrier ZA195 is scheduled to take its place in our line up of important military aircraft in February. ZA195 started life as an FRS1 and first flew on September 9th 1982 but was soon slated for modification to become the first FRS2 prototype, in which guise it took to the air for the first time (again!) in September 1988 piloted by Heinz Frick. After a period of intensive test flying with the manufacturer it moved to the A&AEE at Boscombe Down in early 1990 where it served another 8 years of development work before it passed to BAe at Warton and after service there it went to the Long Term Storage Unit at St Athan.
