Hawker Siddeley XV 6A Kestrel

The British-built Kestrel was a prototype Vertical/Short Takeoff and Landing (VSTOL) aircraft successfully tested in the 1960s. An improved version, known as the Harrier, became the world's first operational VSTOL fighter when it entered RAF service in 1969. The Kestrel on display was delivered to the Museum from Edwards Air Force Base, California, in 1970.‬
