Sea Harrier and F-35B at Farnborough
« on: April 25, 2014, 06:27:24 am »
I guess this is the closest we can get to seeing a P.1216 fly:

Can't wait to see them both, and as the F-35B will be based at RIAT a straight line to Farnborough also takes it over the office!

Off topic, but whereabouts are they flying, Sferrin?
 
The area with the nicely geometrically laid out irrigated fields, in other words.

According to the text at the beginning of the video, Southern California.  ;)

Looks to be the eastern side of California's Coachella Valley, north of home base MCAS Yuma.  The Salton Sea is visible in the background of many sequences.

Thanks aim9Xray.
 
California is a big state, and I was wondering whether the body of water/coastline shape seen in the video might be of help.
