HARRIER GR9A ZD461 51A

An inmate of the IWM Duxford's paint shop and on its way to IWM Lambeth after some remedial work

 

ZD461 Suffered CAT 3 damage when a fire started after taxing onto the ramp at Nellis AFB, Nevada, USA. This was caused by a catastrophic failure of both brake packs which deposited hydraulic oil onto the hot discs. It arrived back at Cottesmore on 19th March. Due to budgetary cuts the Harrier fleet was withdrawn from service on 15th December and it was declared CAT5
