After the Falklands War a number of BAe Sea Harriers were ordered. Sea Harrier FA2 ZD608 first flew in 1985 and joined No.801 Naval Air Squadron in 1986. ZD608 was one of 56 FRS.1 aircraft upgraded to FA2 standards. The FA2's primary task was fleet defender but in 1995 assigned to HMS Invincible, ZD608 as part of Operation Deliberate Force demonstrated the FA2 could be used in a strike role. ODF was a multi-national force acting to stop Bosnian Serb Army aggression. In 2006 Sea Harriers were retired and ZD608 ended its career with a collector in Greece.

BAe Sea Harrier FA.Mk 2

Designed to meet a NATO specification for a light tactical support fighter that was also capable of Vertical/Short Takeoff and Landing (V/STOL), the Harrier first flew in 1960. This unique aircraft has the distinction of being the only successful V/STOL design out of the many that were put forth during the 1960s. There are four different versions of the Harrier, which uses thrust vectoring to achieve V/STOL: the first generation Hawker Siddeley Harrier, the Naval strike/air defense BAE Sea Harrier, the US AV-8B Harrier II variant and the British BAE Harrier II. The Harrier was produced between 1969 and 2003.
