Jet Thunder Falklands/Malvinas Sea Harrier Vertical Landing

A follow-up to our latest video showing Sea Harrier departure to a mission - this time is the return back to the HMS Hermes carrier for a vertical landing - which requires good practice and understanding of the flight envelope at hover. Fully 3D/6DOF/TrackIR virtual cockpit is shown also with the view "looking around the cockpit bars" at about 0:40s of video).

Things still missing / not developed yet:
- HUD should be in Pilot Interpreted Approach (PIA mode) providing recovery guidance, which then switches to V/STOL mode at 0.1 miles of the ship

- no jet wash or any related particle effects caused by vectored thrust jet blast over the carrier's deck

- no proper landing gear suspension anim displayed by the 3D model aircraft in external view

- aircraft carrier is still absolutely stable; in final product we plan to simulate it's pitching and rolling deck, specially in rough seas/bad weather (typical in the South Atlantic).

- no radio communication between Sea Harrier and HMS Hermes control tower.

Very nice, let me know when you need some beta testing doing. I like the way you include the 'little bounce' that Harriers do once they connect with the flight deck. It's not that realistic though, as I still had my hearing after your hover! wink
