Yep, that's the way the brits do it. Not one of the last mods of the nimrods saved, I be suprised if any operational harrier is about in a museum in UK. We are lucky the Belfast is were she is. Could not believe it when I heard that when the last spitfire was decommissioned, they simply wheeled them out into a field and lit them up!

She would of been very useful in 82 and gulf war with modern weapons those 15 inch guns would strike the fear of god into anyone. Most modern weapons would not do anything to her, pure power.
