One of the best ways to check whether a system works well is to test it under extreme conditions. If it works well under extreme conditions, it is expected even better under normal conditions.
What better place to test the SSW Harrier VTO performances than the highest airport in the world ?
So we tested SSW Harrier at Lukla airport (VNLK) close to Everest slopes, a field at 10000 feet, where the VTO is possible with not more than 600 pounds of fuel in wet conditions, is it extreme ? Yes it is, at edge of 'wet' envelope.
A good occasion also to make a ride on the roof of the word into a magnificent natural scenery.
SSW Harrier has stood the test even with a little trick that also shows his AR capability.
Here the link to the movie, enjoy.
