Interesting, possibly apocryphal story about the Harrier I was told back in the late 80's:

Harrier engineers were working on improved digital flight controls. During a tethered, unpiloted test the aircraft successfully took off, slowly reached an altitude of about 10 meters, did a max-rate barrel roll of 180° and fell to the ground under full thrust.

All due to a sign error in some source code.
