The BAe Harrier is the first operational V/STOL (Vertical/Short Takeoff and Landing) aircraft. By directing the engines exhaust through two movable nozzles the force can be used to propel the aircraft along a runway or lift it vertically and then into forward motion. Because of this ability to lift off vertically the Harrier began to be referred to as a "jump jet".
