Two Harriers operating out of Dunsfold last week. I thought field was closed.

Some chat elsewhere on PPRuNe that they were doing something for Top Gear... See Mil forum I think...

Pretty good to get Harriers back at Dunsfold. Top Gear featured a Sea Harrier racing a car round their circuit and doing it in about 30 seconds as opposed to the 1min 40 that the (bentley I think) made it in. Best part was the F/A 2 hovering over the finish line whilst waiting!!!

Dusfold itself I think was officially closed a while back but I did hear that some warbirds are now able to be kept there as long as they adhere to the same operating times as when BAe were there. This means that they aren't able to position out to airshows at weekends so have to leave on Friday and come back on Mondays. (More than just a rumour but I haven't seen anything official - not sure which warbirds they are too...)
