The second pre-production Harrier is seen here preserved by the Scottish National Museum of Flight at East Fortune. XV277 led a life of trials and testing, and although modified to GR.3 standard it never saw operational service. Following retirement, it was used by the Fleet Air Arm at Yeovilton as a ground instructional airframe (hence the Royal Navy markings and the non-standard white undersides) before being sold to a private collector. It was purchased by the Museum of Flight in 2000.
