  1. #1

    Default Falklands War Sea Harrier pilot interview(s)

    Anyone flying the DCS AV-8B may be interested in this - recent podcast interview with 'Sharkey' Ward - a British Sea Harrier (SHAR) fighter pilot who was the UK's top scoring pilot in the Falklands War in 1982.

    A fighter pilot legend and someone who does not mince their words or hold back!

    It's a damn good job they're in the RAF, otherwise they'd be all out there blowing up banks. (Derek Robinson, 'Piece of Cake')

    Bloody dog barking !!

    One thing that hasn't been learned since the Falklands is sorting out the operational vs technocrats thingy !

    If the Harrier is so good as a visual range fighter, I might be tempted to get one :-) lol
