Ex March Hare 1973

Ex March Hare 1973

Another one from Pete Mears’s archive. “Ahden during Exercise March Hare 1973. The field was so soggy we could only operate one Harrier (XV797) with each sortie consisting of a vertical take-off and landing from the MEXE Pad. The four pilots, Pete Taylor, Jock Heron, Whitney Griffiths and Pete Bennett, (shown fighting for the cockpit), managed fourteen sorties in one day – was that a record, I wonder? The aircraft and pilot were lost in a crash the following year.”
