Harrier
A flight maneuver that places the aircraft into a High Alpha Condition where the wing is aerodynamically stalled and lift is maintained by means of excess power.

Control authority is primarily maintained by the down wash of air over the flight controls. In this flight condition the plane is maneuvered around at slow speeds and appears to "hang" on the propeller.

Because the airplane appears to "hover" it is likened to the harrier jet...a fixed wing aircraft capable of vertical take off and landing.
