Hawker Harrier  (1927)    serial unknown


                                     The "first" Harrier was an experimental two seat torpedo bomber built in 1927.  Power was supplied
                                     by a Bristol Jupiter VIII enigine developing some 583 hp.   Looks like a nice machine, but possibly
                                     the RAF were happy with the Fairey designs they possessed in inventory along with Hawker's own
                                     Horsley to warrant investment (funds were hard to come by in 1927) in a new type.   I debated putting
                                     this rather uncontrasty photograph of the one and only Harrier prototype out here since it has no serial,
                                     but decided to do so since I have not found any other images of it.
