This meant the Harrier would be produced in much larger volumes, reducing the production costs, and providing another view of further development. The author has looked at the great story of the Pegasus and the missed opportunities. Rolls Royce and Hawkers always wanted to go on to produce a multi-cell engine for supersonic operation. They also saw potential for other larger aircraft. It was a great missed opportunity to re-establish a lead for the British aerospace industry and to produce fast jet aircraft for vertical insertion and extraction of troops, vehicles and guns in a way that has only become possible with the V Osprey Tilt-rotor used by the USMC.
This story is therefore one of great British pride but also great sorrow that venial politicians have once again let down the British aviation industry, the Armed Forces and the People. You must be logged in to post a comment.
