Classic Aero-TV: 2009 Airshow Stunner – Art Nalls’ Civilian Harrier

From 2009 (YouTube Version): Nalls Summarizes the Civilian Harrier’s First Year on the Air Show Circuit

Art Nalls’ made history when in the 2009 air show season, he premiered the first civilian “Harrier” show on the circuit.  Aero-TV caught up with Nalls at the 2009 ICAS Convention.  

In addition to successfully completing the six show benchmark, Nalls’ announced several other accomplishments; beyond completing the designated air show schedule, another pilot received qualification for the civilian Harrier.

Though the retired USMC major general has had over 2,500 hours in the Harrier, Joe Anderson is not new to the Harrier cockpit; however, at 63 years old, Anderson is now the oldest, currently flying Harrier pilot in the world.  Beyond adding another pilot to the roster, Nalls’ received a low-altitude aerobatic waiver in the Sea Harrier, the first granted in the United States.  Going into their second air show season, Nalls’ expects continued improvement and success.

After attending the United States Naval Academy, graduating with merit in a major in Aerospace Engineering, Art Nalls began his flight training in the T-28B “Trojan.”  After transferring to the T-2C “Buckeye” and the TA-4J “Skyhawk,” Nalls was assigned to his first operational aircraft, the AV-8A “Harrier.”  

For his expert flying of the Harrier, Nalls received an Air Medal, with gold numeral one.  After attending the USAF Test Pilot School, Nalls test piloted the AV-8B “Harrier II.”
