Seeing a Harrier hovering nearby is not an experience that many people forget. Indeed, many service personnel comment that even though they are familiar with the sight it still astonishes them. On this page you will be able to find details of places you can see Harriers, currently a list of museums but soon to include airshows, open days and gate guardians..



The museums listed below are divided by country/continent. Where there is a link from the museum name it is to the museum's homepage - links to Harrier specific pages are from the descriptive text.
