The Harrier, informally referred to as the Jump Jet, is a family of military jet aircraft capable of vertical/short takeoff and landing operations. Historically the she was developed in Britain to operate from ad-hoc facilities such as car parks or forest clearings, avoiding the need for large air bases vulnerable to tactical nuclear weapons. Later the design was adapted for use from aircraft carriers. The Harrier is also subsonic, contrasting with most of the modern Western attack aircraft.

Loved the F4 since being simultaneously excited by and frightened of them as a kid. The Royal Navy version was the best of all of them. The Rolls Royce Speys were so powerful that they would buckle and blister the deck plates of the American carriers that were used to conduct early sea trials. "Ark" had extremely beefy water cooled blast deflectors that could handle the huge heat from both engines on full burner. If I could have any job in history it would probably have been to fly these…
