A Harrier and Jaguar that were used in combat operations have a new lease of life at Tate

I take it none of the aircrafts has nothing inside, while it's suspended into the air like that.
How exactly? Is it an optical illusion ? Or is the Harrier hanging from the ceiling? The Sepecat is very interesting. Thanks for posting.

I believe they have been stripped both internally and of all paint. The Harrier to suspended from the ceiling, i believe it's meant to be symbolic of an angel

Absolutely fascinating exhibition. I was moved to read more about it and also about the artist, which was also fascinating.

Some further links for those who are interested...

Fiona Banner at Tate Britain: Harrier and Jaguar | Art and design |

I would definitely go and see this if I were visiting the UK and I would probably visit Fiona Banner's gallery at the Frith Street Gallery as well.

Thanks Furry!

Last i heard was 7,000 for Jag T.2, back when they had just been taken out of service.

Good find Furry :)
