The original story is not a fake. I remember it being on the Welsh TV news many years ago and it was a Harrier.

When you think of the theory it is perfectly sound. ALARM missiles will lock on to almost any source of RADAR as many units are frequency agile to try and throw off the scent.

ALARM is on the Tornado GR4 armament inventory, I can't find any mention of it for the Harrier.

Best look a bit harder then.

The advantage of underwing pylons is that you can carry a wide range of weapons.............

Later "Sea borne" Harriers (the up rated ones) , can/could carry A.L.A.R.M missiles...but...all the evidence, gathered by far more knowledgeable persons than I, suggests that the story is bullshit. Yet Codders, still says it’s true….
Does anyone know of the range of a Police hand held Radar gun that they were using in that period? I thought it was quite short and how far away would a Harrier have to be for the most shortsighted of our Police force not to have seen it? I believe that the Radar guns only read up to 199 MPH before they show “- -“ .
So Codders, step up with a convincing argument…
