    It had to happen and no surprise that Anton Lin of Skymaster Jets is leading the way. The first gas turbine powered VTOL Harrier AV-8B. Development and testing continues and we're not likely to see it at a public show flying a full VTOL routine until 2019 but nonetheless what has been achieved so far is a sign of things to come.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    I couldn't agree more. I have always loved jets. But nothing I loved so much I wanted to build one of those complicated beasts. But I always said... "If someone were to make a Harrier, I would definitely lay down my aerobatic planes for a hold on to your butts Harrier". Bad Ass? Yeah, understatement right?
