Hide the Harrier

A few shots gents of hide and seek with a Harrier Very Happy (thanks for this idea Tailhook and the scenery recommendation Very Happy ). A little background info for anybody that did'nt know, in Germany the RAF would hide it's Harriers away from the then, Soviet threat, rather than keep them on airbases where they could be readily knocked out it hid them in "hides" around the country that had their own very short runways or indeed used roads as runways. So here's a few shots of a Harrier hide after flying from the MAIW French Airbase scenery somewhere in France Razz .

On the flightline next to all them Frenchy things

Taxi out

Turn onto the Runway...

...last checks...

..advance the throttles and into the sky

Turning to course for Germany

Descending into Germany

Low level approach to our destination

Lower gear and start vectoring the thrust....

..and come in nice and low and slow over the trees

Easssyyy does it

Safely down now taxi to the hide

I see i'm not the only one here

Shut her down and let the ground crew do their business

Thanks for looking and thanks for the idea Tailhook Very Happy

Welshflyer your piloting skills are commendable - I can't even land a helicopter on that strip without doing a bit of pruning on those trees Wall Bashing

honuala in case you don't have the mcdmil.zip yet, you can get it at flightsim.

Thanks Tailhook, i must admit it took a few tries to get it right! At first i was trying to land it like a normal aircraft by lowering the thrust as i vectored it, but in fact you must do the opposite,as you lower flaps/vector the nozzles you must increase thrust, you do go up at first but then you start to slow down and descend slowly, once you find the correct angle for the nozzles you're golden Very Happy !
