Hawker Siddeley TAV-8 Harrier (16-4567)


Wingman to the commander's bird CG-01, CG-07 was last of a group of 8 transients on their way to the west coast for training. Subsequently, this bird would shut-down and spend the night due to mechanical issues with CG-01. The next day a C-130 with parts and mechanic(s) arrived and solved the problem fairly quickly. Note the LITENING targeting pod on centerline. Thank you to Art, for the up-close and personal! AV-8B Harrier II+. Sept 11, 2013

Super nice shot! Is this one a "T"AV-8 BTW?

Hi Dave, not it's not a TAV, but that's what FlightAware defaults to for some reason when you enter the correct ICAO type identifier.

Thanks everyone!

Aircraft is a McDonnell Douglas AV-8B+-19-MC Harrier II Plus, BuNo 164567; at the time of this photo, this Harrier was assigned to Marine Attack Squadron 231 (VMA-231) "Ace of Spades".
Great shot, but it appears they need to add some air to those tires. ;)
