Harrier Jump Jet Scenery

I used the opportunity to check out the extra airbases included in the package - RAF Cottesmore, RNAS Yeovilton etc. In some cases I took the aircraft to their country of origin which was a good excuse to go to Spain, Italy and Argentina in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 ... nice scenery down there by the way!
