Life Story & Timeline

2020

In 2020, Nalls placed his Harrier aircraft and spare parts up for sale signaling the end of his direct participation flying the Sea Harrier at air shows. Nalls and Team SHAR have flown aerial demonstrations in the Sea Harrier since 2007.

2018

In 2018, Nalls Aviation announced that they had acquired Aerial Productions International (API), a company that adapted the small and relatively inexpensive BD-5J microjet to simulate a cruise missile in support of United States Department of Defense (DoD) activities. Cruise missile defense has been an area of increasing importance for the DoD in order to prevent attacks such as the one that occurred at a Saudi oil facility in 2019. API modified the BD-5J from an air show performer to the Small Manned Aerial Radar Target, Model 1 (SMART-1) configuration by reducing radar cross-section and increasing top speed. In September 2019, Nalls and an API team with 6+ microjets flew to Gila Bend Municipal Airport in Arizona and successfully completed three days of airborne radar testing at a nearby US government test range. Nalls reported additional test events with the microjets are planned.

2017

In 2017, Nalls was featured in AARP Studios “Badass Pilot” series. The nine-part series, hosted on YouTube, follows Nalls and his team as they perform at air shows. The first episode aired on November 14, 2017 and described how Nalls acquired the Sea Harrier. Later episodes will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges of flying and maintaining these rare aircraft.

2015

Nalls is active in the aviation community honoring veterans and sharing his experiences with groups such as the Civil Air Patrol and Young Eagles. In 2013, he was one of eight civilian pilots that performed a ceremonial flyover at Arlington National Cemetery for the burial of two Air Force pilots killed during the Vietnam War. Nalls celebrated the military service of World War II fighter ace, Rear Admiral E. L. “Whitey” Feightner, at the Cleveland National Air Show in 2014. On May 8, 2015, he participated in a flyover of the nation’s capital to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Allies of World War II Victory in Europe Day. He was in the first formation of aircraft over the National Mall, consisting of four, Liaison aircraft. They are the military version of the Piper Cub, known as the L-4 “Grasshopper.”

As of 2015, Nalls and his wife, Pat, reside in Calvert County, Maryland.

2014

According to Nalls, his Sea Harrier XZ439 is the world’s first privately owned and flown Harrier of any kind. In 2014, he acquired a two-seat Harrier that is the world’s only flyable civilian Harrier trainer aircraft. In 2020, Nalls decided to sell the Harriers and focus on other aviation opportunities including the SMART-1 microjets acquired in 2018 with the purchase of Aerial Productions International.

In 2014, Nalls acquired a second Sea Harrier, T.8 ZD993, that according to Nalls is the only flyable civilian Harrier trainer in the world. Besides providing a second aircraft for air shows, the trainer allows Nalls Aviation to safely train and certify new Harrier pilots. According to Nalls web site, several new pilots were added to the air show team in 2015: Col. Jenna Dolan USMCR, Lt. Col. Charlie VandenBossche USAF, and Major Monica Marusceac USMCR.

2008

Nalls initially flew XZ439 at the 2008 Culpepper Air Fest to prove the Harrier could draw crowds and be operated at a profit despite the complex maintenance demands. The Culpepper show drew more than 4,000 spectators and established Nalls Aviation as a major air show attraction that later included venues such as the Fair Saint Louis and EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. In 2011, Nalls Aviation participated in about six air shows a year.

2007

The next aircraft in Nalls fleet would be a Sea Harrier, a dedicated naval variant first announced by the Royal Navy in 1975. The Sea Harrier FRS1 entered service in April 1980 and became commonly known as the “Shar.” The acronym “FRS1” referred to the functions of fighter, reconnaissance, and strike to be performed by the first group of Sea Harriers. In 1994, BAE Systems delivered the first “FRS2” model with improvements to the engine, radar, and cockpit layout. The “FRS2” nomenclature was replaced with “FA.2” to express the equal importance of fighter and attack missions. While on a trip to Britain in October 2005, Nalls purchased Sea Harrier XZ439, the second FRS1 aircraft built and the second to be converted to FRS2 configuration. He shipped the jet back to the United States where a mostly volunteer team led by mechanics Christian Vlahos and Rich Gill worked for more than two years to bring the 31-year-old plane back to flying condition. On November 10, 2007, Nalls achieved his dream when he successfully flew XZ439 at St. Mary’s County Regional Airport in Maryland—a first for a non-military pilot.

2001

After retiring from the military, Nalls formed a company to acquire and improve real estate in the Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia area, The company did so well that he was able to return to flying with the acquisition of a Russian Yak-3 in 2001. Nalls next purchased a Czech Aero Vodochody L-39 Albatros jet trainer. Although he enjoyed flying these aircraft, his dream was to own and fly his favorite—the Harrier.

1998

Nalls attended the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base in southern California having been selected for the one Marine Corps slot for that year. After graduating with class 85A, he was assigned to Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland as project test pilot for several Harrier programs including the AV-8B Harrier II. Nalls performed the initial shipboard certification and flight tests on the Italian aircraft carrier Giuseppe Garibaldi and the Spanish aircraft carrier Príncipe de Asturias including the first ski-jump takeoffs in the AV-8B. While leading flight test efforts for several single-engine airstart projects, he accumulated over six hours of flight time in single-engine jet aircraft without the engine running. Nalls retired from the Marine Corps in 1998 with the rank of lieutenant colonel and 22 years of service.

1989

A member of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots, Nalls co-authored two conference papers. The first was presented at the 1989 symposium and evaluated ski jump operations aboard the Príncipe de Asturias in the AV-8B Harrier. The second was presented at the 1993 symposium and evaluated the performance of Former Soviet Union V/STOL aircraft including the Yakovlev Yak-38 and Yak-141. In 2017, Nalls was inducted into the Early and Pioneer Naval Aviation Association also known as the Golden Eagles. The group was founded in 1956 to provide a living memorial to early naval aviators.

1983

On April 29, 1983, during a training flight near Richmond, Virginia, Nalls’s Harrier suffered a complete loss of engine power. Since the engine failure occurred at sufficient altitude, he opted to glide the Harrier to a civilian airport and perform a deadstick landing, stopping just 50 feet (15 meters) short of the runway’s end. Nalls was awarded the Air Medal for this first-of-a-kind Harrier landing.

1982

In 1982, Nalls participated in Northern Wedding, a NATO Cold War naval military exercise, designed to test NATO’s ability to rearm and resupply Europe during times of war. He flew one of eleven AV-8A Harriers from North Carolina to the USS Nassau (LHA-4) located in the North Sea. Nalls, then a captain, was interviewed stating, “We made the trans-Atlantic crossing to demonstrate our rapid deployment capabilities. We showed we could make the transit, land on a Navy amphibious platform and be ready on arrival to provide close-air support.”
