The Royal Thai Navy's squadron of nine Matador AV-8S Harrier fighters has been grounded for almost two months awaiting thearrival of spare parts from the USA, the Bangkok Post reports. The aircraft, obtained from the Spanish Navy two years ago at a cost of $90 million, are deployed on the aircraft carrier HTMS Chakri Naruebet.
