Spain, India and The US Marines still fly them. Not sure how open they are to letting people have a go though...

They are indeed.

There are quite a few preserved and this one is doing something useful still. However it is indeed sad to see one like this.

It is a little sad, especially the more rare airframes, but at least they are serving a good purpose :).

Not only one of the biggest shames ever, but also a SIN, in my eyes. Just about the best multi-role plane they ever had.
One of my all-time favourite planes, and they dumped them all. :rage: :rage: :rage: !!!

It would appear that allot of these are in storage (I spotted 3, 1 that I didn't photograph and 2 more that I haven't shared yet).
They are being used for fire training so in a way they are helping save the lives of aircrew but I have to agree it is sad to see.
There are some nice examples of later models cropping up in museums now. Newark has an RNAS FA2 as does Tangmere in fact here she is
