McDonnell Douglas/BAe Systems YAV-8B Photos

AV-8B00 George Salerno asked me if I had any YAV-8B photos; so, I pulled together this group for him and thought that I would share them with all of you.

“The "Y" indicates that that model is a flying prototype for flight testing. In the case of the McDonnell Douglas Harrier there were two flying prototypes for the AV8B Harrier which were YAV-8B S/N (Ship Number)1 Tail Number 158394 & YAV8B S/N 2 Tail Number 158395. S/N 2 crashed and S/N 1 was renumbered and transferred to NASA as N704NA and should be on display at Aviation Challenge Museum in Huntsville AL.”
