So, this is it. The last day. Michael led the final flight off the Ark Royal, but today he’s not flying but on the ground. The weather is onot good, low fog and poor visibility, but this is the end of the Harriers in the UK. I’ll update the blog through the day as the news reports come in, and then mark this as a memory, to look back on in years to come.
