The Indian Navy retired its Sea Harriers in 2016. One of them, IN-602 travelled over a 1000 miles by road and ended up in the higher altitudes of Lansdowne, in Uttaranchal. On display outside the Garhwal Rifles War Memorial and Museum. The aircraft was the second oldest Sea Harrier in IN Service, and probably the oldest airframe existing (IN601 being lost in an accident). The aircraft was flying even during the retirement ceremony of the Sea Harrier in 2016, as seen in this photograph by Angad Singh

The aircraft is placed on pylon/stilts in the war memorial park, and a nearby info board indicates that it was inagurated by Admiral Sunil Lamba , then Chief of Naval Staff.
