    Note the Harrier looked clean. Must have had the nozzles rotated really oblique to do that. Can you override the flight controls to keep the flaps up and offest with the rotating nozzles? Must be. Woulda thought that was hard wire control law. Maybe it is a degraded mode that is selectable to address system failures. Anybody know?

    If I heard that flying past, I wouldn't know what the hell to think. He must have been just a hair away from hovering.

    Good find!
