When it comes to flying a fighter jet, if you don’t have a runway to launch it off of, you might be stuck in a little bit of a pickle, right? Well, actually, with the likes of the Harrier Jet, you don’t need a runway at all because this thing is as maneuverable as you want it to be!
With the ability to propel itself straight up into the sky, this thing really proves to be nimble and has the ability to get itself in those hard to reach areas. Watching it in action is nothing short of a pure joy as the jet seems like it’s almost able to defy physics in its normal movements.
Check out the video below that takes you along for the ride with a couple of Harriers that strut their best stuff to show you what they’re really made of. Who wouldn’t want to hop inside of one of these things and learn how to pilot them after watching a display like this.
