The Harrier jump jet was a unique, and to many iconic aircraft, one that could take off, hover and land like a helicopter but fly like a fast jet. Although many tried to build their own version, none other than the Soviet version, the YAK-38 lasted more that 15 years, the Harrier which is still in use 55 years after it first flew but just not in England, the country that created it. This is the rise and fall of the Harrier jump jet.
