What happens in this video ?
The Harrier crashed during a demonstration at Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival. The aircraft suddenly started to descend and began to move forward. 4 or 5 seconds later, it crashed into the see. The pilot ejected successfully 20 meters above sea level. The accident was caused by the failure to select the nozzle control lever to the "Hover stop" following an inadvertent nozzle lever movement.
