Harrier: The Vertical Reality
The Harrier - the World's best selling combat 'jump jet'.

The reality - almost forty years on after the first development aircraft flew, the Harrier is still one jump ahead of its rivals. This DVD salutes the achievements of the Harrier, in peace and war, over land and sea, through test and research, taking this unique British aircraft design towards the 21st century. We bring you the test pilots who lifted the first RAF Harrier into the air in 1966 and the squadron pilots who flew her in the fiercest of firefights - in the Falklands campaign and, most recently, in Bosnia.

This fast paced, action packed DVD features original and dramatic footage provided by British Aerospace and the Ministry of Defence to link with exclusive videotape taken of No1 (Fighter) Squadron's spectacular mass display of Harriers at Fairford's International Air Tattoo '96, as well as eavesdropping on briefing, kitting out and cockpit checks before a 'Four Ship' ground attach sortie from the home of the Harrier at RAF Wittering. Also, recorded for the first time at Boscombe Down Flight Test Centre, we show you the cockpit of the special 'fly-by' wire' Harrier created by the Defence Evaluations & Research Agency to test the new flight control system for the combat 'jump jets' of the future - the US/British Joint Strike Fighter.

Special DVD feature: Actor and aviation enthusiast, David Jason, arrives at RIAT in a two-seater Harrier, meets Test Pilot, Bill Bedford, while the Harrier squadron performs a simulated bombing raid.
