"I'm so proud to be British"The British made the British Aerospace Harrier. The Harrier is a VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft, it won't need a long runway to take-off.
The Harrier has one engine and four nozzles.
It can turning the four nozzles to the ground and the power of the thrust is lifting the plane into the sky.
Once airborne the Pilot is turning the nozzles slowly backwards, than the plane is moving forwards and is getting lift from the wings.
When it has reached enough speed the Harrier will fly like a conventional airplane.
