Harrier Inside and Out
|INSIDE:||185 colour photos|
The Harrier has been around since the 1960s and it remains one of the worldâ€™s most versatile, remarkable and popular aircraft. Developed to operate without the need of a runway, the Harrier uses a unique system of four vectored-thrust nozzles and a number of small reaction control jets to allow vertical take-off and landing.
Employed in theatres of war all over the world, the Harrier is perhaps most famous [in its Royal Navy Sea Harrier guise] for its part in the Falklands War and with British and American forces in the Gulf conflict. The Harrier is still an important front line type in the twenty-first century.
Mark Attrillâ€™s colourful and informative book provides the reader with a wealth of superb photographic detail of the major Harrier variants. Showing important but seldom-seen details, this book will be invaluable to any aircraft enthusiast or modeller.
