The majority of the RAF Harriers is stationed at RAF Cottesmore. This airbase is located west of the city of Peterborough. The Harrier is a versatile aircraft which is unique in its kind. There is as yet no other fighter in the world like the Harrier which can take-off and land vertically. These properties ensure that the aircraft can operate in places where other aircraft cannot take off or land. The Harrier is an ideal aircraft for the Royal Navy because the aircraft can easily operate from relatively small aircraft carriers. Besides RAF Cottesmore, is the Harrier in England also stationed at RAF Wittering and RNAS Yeovilton. The aircraft is playing a very important role as close air support aircraft.
