After the Falklands War a number of BAe Sea Harriers were ordered. Sea Harrier FA.2 #ZD608 was first flown in 1985 and joined Royal Navy No. 801 Naval Air Squadron in 1986. ZD608 was one of 56 FRS.1 aircraft upgraded to FA.2 standards. The FA2s primary task was fleet defense but in 1995 ZD608, assigned to Invincible as part of Operation Deliberate Force, demonstrated the FA.2 could be used in a strike role. "Operation Deliberate Force" was a multi-national force acting to stop the Bosnian Serb Army aggression. In 2006 Sea Harriers were retired and ZD608 ended its career with a collector in Greece.Opening canopy

The BAe Sea Harrier entered service with the British Royal Navy in April 1980. The Sea Harrier is a naval VTOL jet fighter designed for reconnaissance and attack roles. In 1993 an improved variant of the Sea Harrier was built as the FA.2 with a more powerful engine, improved air-to-air capabilities and weapons options. The FA.2 was produced until 1998 and continued in service until 2006 when it was replaced by the Harrier GR9. 56 FA.2 Sea Harriers were produced for the Royal Navy.
