MY understanding of a Harrier is:

1. Landing the plane so that the tailwheel touches first, then the roll out is on the tailwheel and finally the mains touch down. This is typically done at a 30 - 45 degree angle to the ground.

2. Coming in for a 'touch and go' where the plane is at a 30 - 45 degree angle to the ground. The tailwheel is the only part of the plane to touch the ground. The ones I have seen usually have the tailwheel travel along the ground for several feet.

A harrier is a maneuver where the nose of the plane is pitched up to a point where the plane is in a stalled condition and the engine is not only developing the majority of the thrust but lift as well. The plane can be in any of the 90 degree positions of the longitudial axis, but in a high nose up condition.
