End of the Sea Harrier

India has decommissioned its Sea Harrier FRS 51's. End of an era. Random though from this article- it also mentions that IMS Viraat (formerly HMS Hermes) will be decommissioned this year. Would be nice to bring her home and preserve her as a museum, esp since it seems unlikely Illustrious will be saved from scrap. After HMS Plymouth went there are no Falklands veterans left, so having Hermes back would also rectify that situation.
