A detailed DIE-CAST model for the adult collector
Sqn began operations with the Harrier on 22nd June 1970, moving to RAF Wildenrath in Germany with 4 GR1 Harriers. The squadron grew rapidly and was soon a major part of Britain's Harrier force, and was a key part of NATO in defending Germany against Soviet aggression.
On 4th January 1977 the Sqn moved to RAF Gutersloh but has also been active in other places, with its aircraft being deployed to Belize and the Falkland Islands after the conflict.
The GR3 aircraft modelled carries a special commemorative tailfin, with a stylised version of 4 Sqn's crest applied to the tailfin. 4 Sqn remains at the forefront of RAF Harrier operations to this day, currently operating the GR7/9 as part of Joint Force Harrier.
