Its part of the very,very rare Phantom Phinale videos. The originals were released on video during the last display season and were made by Mark "Manners" Mainwaring the Navigator in the last display ship.

Like I say the original videos [VHS only] are now ultra rare, unfortunately they've never been released on dvd which makes the chances of seeing the full versions virtually impossible, unless you're lucky enough [like me.... :grin: ] to own them both AND have them backed up to disc.

Ahhhh, thats only another single section m8, each one on the originals last about 40 minutes & has a different Queen track for each sequence. :grin:

Happy days, eh? FANTASTIC VIDEOS!! :clapping:

 

I remember back in the late 80s or early 90s seeing a BBC News bulletin where they simulated a QRA alert at RAF Mount Pleasant for the cameras. For some reason that report has stuck in my mind - the running for the Hangars - the strapping up and the engine start - the glowing, screaming Spey engines heading down the runway away from the camera.

Would love to see that report again but I wouldn't know where to start looking :this:

I haven't looked at them all but the uploader claims that he's put 5 parts on t'tube.

 

Edit: sorry, I see what you mean.
