UrsaMajor saidI have to find the video of the guy who restores and sells Sukhovs. I know they aren't in the same technological universe, but climbing through 10K in 1minute nearly vertically is awesome anyway.
This is amazing video. So what is that thing above the cockpit? It looks like some sort of an air-scoop but I cannot see how it wouldn't just break off in flight.
I think I saw it on an X-men episode once.
It was really cool back then. Now it really exists!

It definitely has. However, the Harrier can't go supersonic, isn't all that maneuverable, has a huge radar signature, and has a crash rate 4 times higher than other fighters. And the Harrier is much more unstable in hover than the F-35 -- it wobbles like a nervous bride on her wedding night.
UrsaMajor saidThanks for posting that Nova episode. I just finished watching that, and found it enormously inspiring.
