Looks like the Harrier was doing some low altitude flying and the drop tank "came off", supposedly the pilot didn't jettison it.
Think this will bring an end to low level training in that area?

the tank fell off? unfortunate incident, I suppose. If the tank was not empty, it could have exploded when hitting the ground, injuring the man.

I was wondering about the tank itself. Not too sure what RAF Harrier aircraft specification in this situation
