Kuwait 3 decades ago on this day...

Military Aviation A forum for the professionals who fly military hardware. Also for the backroom boys and girls who support the flying and maintain the equipment, and without whom nothing would ever leave the ground. All armies, navies and air forces of the world equally welcome here.

I assume Chopper2004 is talking about 1990 and not 1961. There being in the interval Denis Healey's abolition of the RN Far East Fleet as part of the withdrawal from 'East of Aden'. Even at the death in 1971 it had a proper carrier Eagle, an LPH Albion. and an LPD Intrepid; for most of the Sixties there were three carriers of various flavours on station. In 1990 the focus was still very much the North Atlantic, and pace Sharkey and any early '90s stovies, but Sea Harrier wasn't really going to augment the power of the USN's TGs 150.4 and 150.5.
