Any Harrier pilots?

Does anyone know if there are any current or former Harrier/Sea Harrier pilots on this forum? If so, I'd be grateful for any pointers to the right people! Thanks!

The two I know are John Farley and Edmund Spencer.

John the obvious one that I suspect you knew, and if you search for Falklands crash sites in this forum you'll find Edmund, there may be more Harrier pilots in there (which incidently is an excellent thread).

FB11 has been known to pole the SHAR and GR7/9. He even found time to to write a very fine book about his experience rocky-side.

Hey Monsieur Parry, how did you know

Yes, I WAS a mate of the bona persuasion (Senior Service). I was going to say, 'and so's my wife', but that would have been a lie.

VANE!!!

DBTW, we are not worthy to have you in our midst. Your recent media fame as Sea Harrier pilot extrodinaire puts the rest of us all to shame.

Flew you in a T-Bird

Hi Tim, flew you in a T8, would be more than happy to chat having flown both types.
