THE HARRIER FAREWELL FLYPAST
 
Look at this carefully...it is a brilliant example of British Humor.
The British government has scrapped the Harrier fleet (cost cutting)
and on their farewell formation fly-past over the Houses of Parliament,
they (the RAF pilots) gave the British government a message!!
Lean back a bit from your computer monitor and squint.
Seriously...push your chair back a couple of feet and read the two words that the formation is displaying!
 
Edit:
Got in the mail and posted as looked interesting.
Didn't realise it may be a fake till saw Anwar sir's and VC sir's posts.
Hence pic deleted.

Just search for "Harrier farewell" on Google, one of the top 3 links will be the snopes.com link ! Wink

There are ways to search for images, but not needed in this case.
