Here are a couple of US Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier II‘s performing reverse landings aboard the USS America. A reverse landing is when the aircraft is pointing in the opposite direction to the ship, which is moving forward along its normal course. Effectively, the Harriers have to fly backwards at the speed of the ship in order to remain stationary relative to their landing position on the deck, and descend while maintaining backwards flight.
Some tricky flying there – but they made it look easy. Nicely done, guys!
