Hawker Siddeley accomplished the engineering, and these changes were incorporated into the last AV-8A while it was on the production line, and earlier aircraft as they passed through depot-level maintenance. In an effort to get as many singleseat Harriers as possible before Congress decided to stop funding purchases of a foreign aircraft, the Marine Corps waited until their last A 7977 photograph of Harriers aboard an aircraft carrier. Although a relatively small aircraft, the Harrier nevertheless presented some handling difficulties aboard large-deck carriers.

The above figure illustrates four mechanisms for FOD ingestion. (A) Even a smooth surface is relatively bumpy to a small object such as a rock, bolt, gravel" etc. As this object is rapidly accelerated by the radial flow of perhaps 400 knots of the jet exhaust, it soon encounters a bump and bounces up, often into the engine intake flow which is also at a high velocity, and thus into the engine. (8) On an unprepared surface, the Harrier is capable of rapidly digging its own grave. As a crater is formed, the crater itselfserves to direct the ejected material back towards the aircraft.

British Aerospace) When Spain began to acquire more modern AV-8Bs, the Matadors were placed in a supporting role at Rota, mainly for training and indoctrination. In early 1992, a $70 million deal was signed by the Spanish to transfer seven singleseat and a pair of two-seat aircraft to the Royal Thai Navy. At the same time, a 11 ,500-ton carrier named Chakkri Naruebet was ordered from the Bazan shipyard. Although intended primarily as a helicopter carrier operating Sikorsky S-70B Sea hawks, it is equipped with a 12° ski-ramp at the bow.
