When I was stationed at MCAS Cherry Point in the late 1970's, we had a Harrier flip over and crash while practicing at the hover pad. It took off in the direction of our large hangar and thankfully went into the other side (depot maintenance) instead of ours (SOES) where we had a C-9B, T-39's and CH-46 aircraft, all fully fueled. I came back from lunch to find the Harrier in the parking lot at the other side of the hangar, after having plowed through what was left of another Harrier crash, among other things.

I was wondering. How many Harriers were lost in or near MCAS Cherry Point? Does anyone know?
