Doesn't suprise me in the least....

Scandal as MoD reveal that Harriers were still being upgraded when they were sold for parts to the US | Mail Online

A Freedom of Information request to the Ministry of Defence has revealed that the controversial scrapping of the entire UK Harrier fleet took place whilst the planes were still undergoing a £500 million upgrade.

The retirement of the jets, eight years earlier than scheduled, leaves the country without carrier-borne aircraft.

As to their fate, a second batch of aircraft has now made its way from RAF Cottesmore to Southampton where they are being shipped to America, having been sold to the US Marine Corps to provide spares for their craft. The paltry £116 million for which they were sold was a fraction of the cost of their upgrade.
