      Betaversion of Harrier STOVL capability introduced, add to README:
      Harrier (AV8B) can now perform Short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL).
      It is controled with "Autohover ON/OFF" action.
      When activated, there is no such autopilot for slowdown that helicopters use.
      Thrust vector is just rotated downwards. Q/Z keys control only airplane speed.
      There are no keys for control over vertical thrust,
      so it is not possible to hover up/down like in helicopter.
      Takeoff procedure:
      - activate Autohover
      - extend full flaps (2x crtl+K)
      - gain some speed by holding Q for a short while and then release it.
      - once in the air, retract gear (crtl+G)
      - hold Q a little longer until you move fast enough
      - retract flaps as you build more speed (2x ctrl+L)
      - at aprox 180kmph toggle autohover off and control flight as regular aircraft
      Landing procedure:
      - reduce speed and altitude same way as during conventional landing
      - extend full flaps (2x crtl+K), drop gear (crtl+G)
      - hold Z to reduce speed
      - at aprox 180 kmph activate Autohover
      - pitch nose up to reduce speed, check speed, height and flight path vector indicated on HUD
      - hold Z for descent at aprox 2m/s
      - at touchdown toggle autohover off
