You could see the turbulence on the water (caused by the engines, right?) stop, just before the plane goes swimming.

Forgot to add: It was still cool to see fighter jets at I-A-B.

Jets Rule.

It seemed his engine intake fans gave out when he attemped to pitch forward. he lost engine airflow provided by the vacuuming fans and lost the lift he had. Plus, the thrust-vectoring nozzles could have accidentally pitched him forward, as neither the AV-8A or the AV-8B have thrust-vector-controlling avionics as the F-35B Lightning II does. Either that or he was an idiot.

Pilots are supposed to maintain 100 meters above civilian areas unless otherwise instructed. Either he was allowed to do that, or he wasn`t. If he wasn`t, he would have been court-marshalled and relieved of his duty.

I see no info about the pilot being grounded, even after a google search, the story is that the multi million dollar aircraft was salvaged out of the shallow water and probably repaired.

While he may have been technically grounded, the info points to coincidental reasignment due to a suspected leg injury which was later shown to be just fine, however the pilot did not go back to the air force imediatly despite having no ankle injury, but rather went with the reassignment. I find this fact incredibly odd but definitly not pointing to a direct issue with the pilot.

Even being able to do all those maneuvers requires ridiculous skill.

Interesting. He came damn close to people, though. I`d like the report before making any real judgments.

And the one thing I have to agree with Koala on, for sure? The orgasm aspect.

Flying is awesome, particularly when you`re in control.

It is a really good jet, but it was designed for specific purposes that you mentioned earlier and is definently blown out of the water by jets like the FA 18, the F 16 and, of course, the eagle. And tinkerbellio, your`e right. I wouldn`t turn one up if offere. But if I did, my dad would kill me.

Hey, You`re the ones who can get multiple orgasms, And experience Simulations we couldn`t even dream of.
For me - I like Negative Gs.

You keep your chocolate, I`ll take Pilotting a small aircraft over Sex anytime.

And Canary you still know nothing about Jets. Just like you can`t compare a peice of art out of the context of when it was made, Saying "Harriers Suck" Is comparing it to more modern Aircraft.

When the Harrier Came it, sure it had its share of problems like any other jet, But it was revolutionary.

You Might as Well Say the U2 Sucks if you still say the harrier sucks. U2 kicked ass.

this is taken from the Lowestoft airshow in England a few years ago. No one was injured, but I hear the pilot had ejected a couple of time before, and is now grounded, or at least not a fast jet pilot anymore

Don`t tell me that I know nothing when you don`t even know who the hell I am. It`s my opinion and compared to other jets, the harrier isn`t exactly on the top of the list.

You know nothing. Harriers where made for easier take off and landings from AirCraft Carriers.

Sound is irrlevant. Allthought Sound is what eventually scrapped the jetPack project of the 60ies.

Ever Go 40 feet away from a Harrier during Vertical Take off or landing? Better then sex. Best Summer ever. Sorta miss the Army.
