You Don't Want 'Em? We'll Take 'Em Off Your Hands

The US Navy and US Marine Corps agree to buy all of the Royal Navy Harrier jets, plus spare parts.

I used to watch Harriers take off and land when I was in the Navy, serving on board USS Saipan (LHA2) and USS Nassau (LHA4). Impressive, to say the very least. I'm sorry that Great Britain is in such distress that it can't afford them any more, but glad we got them so we can extend their use in our own fleet.
