VAAC Harrier 2007 - World's First SRVL (Shipborne Rolling Vertical Landing)
Back in 2007, off the southern coast of France on the French carrier Charles de Gaulle, VAAC Harrier XW175 performed the world's first Shipborne Rolling Vertical Landings (SRVL). Described as a "cockamamy British idea" by a USMC test pilot, the world's first trials to assess the feasibility of the landing technique were carried out, involving multiple touch-and-go landings. This technique is to be employed in service on UK F-35B aircraft. The final step of the 2007 trials was a full stop landing.
