The McDonnell Douglas AV-8B Harrier Prints
The McDonnell Douglas AV-8B Harrier II, also known as the Harrier Jump Jet, is a second generation vertical/short takeoff and landing (V/STOL) ground attack aircraft currently used by the United States Marine Corps. Its development was a shining example of US - UK cooperation of Cold War defense achievements. The first variant, known as the "Day Attack" version, was placed in service in 1985. These aircraft have either been upgraded to either of the later variants ("Night Attack" and "Harrier II Plus), or withdrawn from service.
The AV-8B Harrier II is a subsonic, single pilot, ground attack aircraft flown from carriers and large amphibious ships in support of USMC ground units. It can carry a wide variety of weapons on its external hard points. As of January 2010, the USMC has 99 AV-8B Harrier II Plus aircraft in operation.

The artist, Keith Ferris, says of this print, "This painting was commissioned by the Bendix Corporation, who built the onboard oxygen generating system on the AV-8B Harrier. The painting was completed nearly a half year before the rollout of the first AV-8B. I was able to work with engineers from the McDonnell plant in St. Louis, MO to assure the accuracy of my drawing. The painting shows the increased capability of the advanced Harrier, using STOL techniques in the field to carry twice the load over the same radius of action, or the same load over twice the radius of action of its Marine Corps predecessor, the AV-8A. The painting was presented to the United States Marine Corps by Bendix.
