The BAe Sea Harrier FRS1 first entered service with the Royal Navy in April 1980. The aircraft is a naval VTOL/VSTOL jet fighter designed for reconnaissance and attack roles. In 1993 an improved variant of the Sea Harrier was produced as the FA.2 with a more powerful engine, improved air-to-air capabilities and weapons options. The FA.2 was produced until 1998 and continued in service until 2006 when it was replaced by the Harrier GR9. 56 FA.2 Sea Harriers were produced for the Royal Navy.

After the Falklands War a number of BAe Sea Harriers were ordered. Sea Harrier FA2 ZD608 first flew in 1985 and joined No.801 Naval Air Squadron in 1986. ZD608 was one of 56 FRS.1 aircraft upgraded to FA2 standards. The FA2’s primary task was fleet defender but in 1995 assigned to HMS Invincible, ZD608 as part of Operation Deliberate Force demonstrated the FA2 could be used in a strike role. ODF was a multi-national force acting
to stop Bosnian Serb Army aggression. In 2006 Sea Harriers were retired and ZD608 ended its career with a collector in Greece.
