Many thanks for posting this Russo, I haven't seen it in about 40 years, and that was in black and white, on TV.

I love watching Vampires, I used to see them at airshows when I was a teenager.

And that dawn take-off in the Hunters is pure art!

The first 20-25 minutes brought back memories of Initial Officer Training there in 1976-77.  The combat kit & the rifles were different, but the RAF Regiment SNCOs treated us with just the same fond loving care! The nephew of a friend of mine is at Cranwell right now, from all reports the initial stages are still the same..  :))   

PS made me smile to see the same RAF issue _furniture_ in the cadets’ rooms, as we were still using 20 years later.
