Harrier Jump Jet Compressor Fan Mirror Hp1 - Rolls Royce Pegasus engine - Highly Polished | AEROART.CO.UK

Here we have a stunning mirror crafted from a low-pressure HP1 Compressor fan from a Rolls-Royce Pegasus engine as used in the Harrier Jump Jet. This fan has been completely disassembled and then painstakingly polished to a mirror finish front and back and then very carefully reassembled, all that work takes over 20 hours to get these results!

     The Harrier Jump jet is an attack aircraft capable of vertical and short takeoff and landing operations.  Named after a bird of prey, designed and manufactured by Hawker Siddeley and powered by the Rolls-Royce Pegasus engine the Harrier soon became a legend of the 20th century.  Most notable was its formidable success rate in the Falkland Islands during the Argentinian war where Sea Harriers shot down 20 mirage jets while losing 0 aircraft in air-to-air combat.
