Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The '''British Aerospace Sea Harrier''' (informally '''Shar''') is a naval short take-off and vertical-landing/vertical take-off and landing jet fighter, reconnaissance and attack aircraft, and a development of the [[Hawker_Siddeley_Harrier_GR1Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR1|Hawker Siddeley Harrier]]. It first entered service with the Royal Navy in April 1980 as the Sea Harrier {{Abbrabbr|FRS1|Fighter, Reconnaissance, Strike, Mk. 1}} and became informally known as the "Shar" ('''S'''ea '''Har'''rier). Unusual in an era in which most naval and land-based air superiority fighters were large and supersonic, the principal role of the subsonic Sea Harrier was to provide air defence of the fleet from Royal Navy aircraft carriers. Retired in 2006, today there is only one airworthy Sea Harrier in the world. XZ439, a restored former Royal Navy Sea Harrier FA2, is operated in the United States by Art Nalls, a former USMC pilot ([http://www.nallsaviation.com/ website]).
The version currently modeled in [[FlightGear]] is the Sea Harrier {{Abbrabbr|FA2|Fighter, Attack, Mk. 2}}, an improved version with the {{Wikipediawikipedia|Blue Vixen}} radar and the {{Wikipediawikipedia|AIM-120 AMRAAM}} missile.
