Harrier Real Ale

My brother-in-law (a brewer) has been asked to make a real ale for an 'end of Harrier' event and he's asked me for ideas for a suitable name. I've thought of:

Hover Stop
Kestrel's End
Wittering No More
Bedford's Bitter
Golden Rivet (for the SHAR boys!)
Falklands Freedom

Any more ideas gratefully received but he needs the name by Fri 14 Jan... HELP!!!!

A few to add and promote further thinking:

Peggy Power (Peggie or Pegasus)
Reaction Nozzle
Puffer Duct
VIFF
Jump Jet

Would like to know who's brewing it and where the outlets going to be if your able to tell us!

RIP Harrier

Surely it won't need a name - it will just announce itself as a Harrier ale .....

Alternatively how about ....

Thanks so far, sadly he's only providing one barrel, so no freebies or bottles to buy!

If it's normal brown beer - 'Bona Beer'

If it's double stout - 'La Muerta Negra'

If it's lager - 'SHARmonade'

How about "Shafted Ale" or "Torpy's Revenge"

Of course I'm not bitter!
