The Falklands were a great advert for it.....Hopefully the F35 will be a worthy replacement

Absolutely. The Harrier is now 40 years old though! F35 with British / American heads on the project can only be a winner though... Remember the Mustang????

The Harriers only real weakness is its inability to go supersonic.... also, hover times are only 40 odd seconds due to only 50 litres of water on board to cool the engine, the F35 gets past both obstacles....

Lend lease .You've lost me Torps

BAE is moving into the American market and many of its projects are tie ups with other companies due to the high cost of such projects. The Eurofighter was a British/German/Italian effort and the F35 is an America/British effort. Bae will be building the New aircraft carriers with the French company Thales so its just the way things are now adays...

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is the prime contractor and performs aircraft final assembly, overall system integration, mission system, and provides forward fuselage, wings and flight controls system. Northrop Grumman provides Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, center fuselage, weapons bay, and arrestor gear. BAE Systems provides Aft fuselage and empennages, horizontal and vertical tails, crew life support and escape systems, Electronic warfare systems, fuel system, and Flight Control Software (FCS1). Alenia will perform final assembly for Italy and, according to an Alenia executive, assembly of all European aircraft with the exception of the UK's.

sorry.
I was referring to the the Mustangs which Texas used
as example. we actually might have shot down one of those.
Soviet Union operated about 10 lend lease planes.
Far more common sight was the Curtiss-P40 or "Tomahawk".

you all might find this interesting:

Its Finnish Manual for identifying Soviet Planes

anyhows back to the subject.

F-35 Filling Harriers shoes? does it really have to?
that fighter can easilly run around without "shoes"...
altough F-22 does the same without "socks".

I believe that they're only building 183 F22's for the United States Air Force , not the 650 originally envisaged
