David Lawrence - Ready For Launch - Sea Harrier
The Sea Harrier FRS.1 introduced to the Royal Navy the idea of vertical take off and landing (VTOL). This unique ability among service aircraft was ideal for use on the Royal Navy's small aircraft carriers, the first of which entered service in 1980.
The Sea Harrier will be best remembered for its success in the Falklands War, where it provided the air cover so important in modern warfare. This card would be ideal for anyone with an interest in the aircraft or who served in the Royal Navy at the time.
