Harrier recognition

The sharply downward-sloping wing and tailplane, and the large air intakes of the Pegasus engine (3) make the Harrier very distinctive. The undercarriage is also unusual, in that the main wheels and nose wheel retract in tandem into the fuselage and there are two outrigger wheels that retract into housings on the wing at about two-thirds span (1). The cockpit glazing is large and pronounced on all versions(2). The T10 has a much more pronounced 'hump' for the twin cockpit (4) and is slightly longer than the GR7.
