The revolutionary British-designed Harrier or 'Jump Jet' combat aircraft is capable of Vertical/Short Take-off and Landing (V/STOL). During the Falklands War in 1982 RAF and Fleet Air Arm Harriers and Sea Harriers flew in action against the invading Argentinean forces. RAF Harriers have also seen active service over Bosnia, in Desert Storm 1 and 2, and most recently in Afghanistan. The authors give detailed insights into the construction, operation and maintenance of the entire Harrier family, but with a particular focus on the RAF's GR3 Cold War warrior.
The superlative Harrier 'jump jet' got its first blooding in the Falklands Conflict of 1982 and proved its near-invincibility in air-to-air combat, while the Harriers impressive capabilities were later put to the test in combat missions over Iraq and Afghanistan. In its final version, the GR9/9A, the Harrier provided the RAF with what was arguably the finest close air support aircraft in the world.
In the Haynes Hawker Siddeley/BAe Harrier Manual author Denis Calvert gets under the skin of this revolutionary British-designed combat aircraft to give a unique insight into its design, development and operational career. He also includes revealing firsthand accounts of flying and maintaining the world famous 'jump jet'. More...
