Harrier T4 XW271 at Ballarat Springfest

Australia’s first and only VTOL fighter will be on display at Ballarat Springfest Market Sunday on 26 November 2017. Donate to Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute to receive a personal Harrier experience.

Come on down to Springfest Market day to take home a once-in-a-lifetime memory of the world’s most famous VTOL fighter. Climb into the cockpit, receive a briefing from one of AVT’s expert engineers and get some great pictures while you’re there! 100% of your donation will go to fund vital cancer research.

Harrier XW271 is being restored to ground-run condition by AVT with the support of staff and our partners. First entering sevice in 1969, the Harrier has been the world’s only truly successful VTOL fighter. Our T.Mk4 twin seat model was built for the RAF in 1971 and saw 36 years of service before being retired from operation in 2004. Acquired by AVT in 2015, XW271 is now the only Harrier based in Australia. After a detailed cockpit and fuselage restoration, the aircarft was proudly displayed at the 2017 Australian International Airshow.
