Neglected.

Get on it man, it's going to look excellent. As for the cash, it's only money down the drain if you don't finish it.

Pegasus engine and thrust vectoring, 50's design lol! Its a pitty they went out of service, decent noise.

 Similar sort of design efforts went into the polo  ;D

Yeah they should never of got rid of the sea harrier. One in pic is a GR. Still one of the best aircraft they had, and with one of the worlds most advanced radar. Blue vixen i thing it was called. My mate who worked on them at yeovilton said when they used to test the radar system and weapon locking, they used to point it at the road and track cars coming down a hill about 2-3 miles away, then simulate a weapon firing at the car.

Hmmm, thrust vectoring.....

Are you a mech or aircrew james? Somehow got you in my mind as a loadie. Car looks so nice man, makes me miss my satin m05s! Perfect stance too, coils make it so shit to get everything the right height as the rears can go to the floor

I went to a lecture the other week by the guy that oversaw the harrier project. He had some good footage fom the early test flights. Interesting stuff.

I've been to a few bases and seen em practising of ramps etc and vertical take off stuff too(before they went out of service). A mate of mine was a harrier pilot then got transferred onto the typhoon (best pilots were harrier pilots due to the nozzle transition) . The engine is a work of art though, went round the Rolls factory in Derby with Uni and they had one there. Loads crashed in the testing phase didn't they?

Im an aircraft engineer in the fleet air arm (royal navy) on a promotion course at the mo.

Yeah a lot crashed from being in the hover. They use water to increase thrust, like water injection, but it only gave them a limited supply then they ran out and fell quite quickly.

This video here:

Was something to do with the pilots jacket catching, i think, the selector for hover lever and caused it to literally fall out the sky.

This was a harrier that crashed at yeovilton into the river yeo.

AS you can imagine the environment people were not happy.

You wanna check out the new VTOL F35 lighting. Thats got some crazy stuff going on for the hover. Looks like a transformer coming into land and used a fan to make it hover with the jet nozzles at the rear to help.

Doesnt the engine produce hot and cold air for the nozzles? Cant remember now, and then it has air tubes running down the wings to enable it to turn in the hover.

Also the G-Lynx used water methanol injection to set the fastest speed record for a chopper.

And i think in WW2 they used water injection for the aircraft. The spitfire used a supercharger to get more power as it went higher.
