Jonathan Glancey - Harrier (2nd Hand Paperback)
The British designed and built the Harrier, the most successful vertical take-off-and-landing aircraft ever made.
Combining state-of-the-art fighter plane technology with a helicopter's ability to land vertically the Harrier has played an indispensable role for the RAF and Royal Navy in a number of conflicts, most famously the Falklands War.
Jonathan Glancey's biography is a vividly enjoyable account of the invention of this remarkable aeroplane and a fitting tribute to the inspiration and determination of the men and women who created it, and the bravery of the men who flew it, often in the most dangerous conditions.

"Takes you on a vivid tour through the history of the aircraft and the men and women who created and flew it." - Daily Express.
"Remarkable journey of an amazing aircraft. Fortunate to have seen one close up, rise, tilt up vertical and shoot into the clouds. A thundering body filling event that brought me to overwhelming emotion for its sheer power terror and grace. The book even though filled with model names galore, weaves history into the Harriers life. I really enjoyed it" - Goodreads Review.
