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.

Tornado GR4 Fighter jet. Many people don't approve of these mighty machines disturbing the tranquility of the mountains of Snowdonia. However, there is a purpose to these training flights and the best that anyone can do is to pray that they will never have to be used in anger defending our freedom and way of life.
