Overview

Nordeen, who has worked for Boeing for a number of years, tells the story of the Harrier II aircraft, tracing its development from US Marine Corps air-ground team close air support concepts in the 20s, through the first Harrier's evolution during Vietnam and near cancellation during the Carter administration, and Harrier II's use in Iraq and Afghanistan. The narrative includes interviews with military commanders, pilots, engineers, production personnel, including some figures who opposed the development of the craft.
