Saint Louis, Missouri
Here you see a U. S. Marine Corps Harrier Aircraft. This aircraft was developed in England during the late 1950s and the early 1960s. The Harrier is a Vertical/Short Take Off and Landing (V/STOL) fixed wing combat aircraft. It is an impressive aircraft to view. It is moving straight up with the exhaust shooting downward.
This Osprey Aircraft performed a flyby to demonstrate the ability to hover, do go up or down as well as fly forward. It is a Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft that is capable to operating in close situations. The engines rotate on the wing tips. Another aircraft that is interesting to observe in operation.
