Sad to think that there is no longer a fixed wing FAA anymore - well at least for the time being until the 2 new carriers come on-stream with the F-35. This really could be a matter of "watch this space" too. Imagine a situation were the current UK government looses the next election to the Labour Party and they then cancel the two carriers and the F-35 - could just happen?

Something to have been proud of, but so, so sad. It's all gone, isn't it.

Thanks for posting there really is something special about a big aeroplane like the Phantom going onto such a small deck carrier!
Time to spare..go by air!

I notice that the Bucc at 2:57 rears up while the wings were folding. Was this common?

To me the Sea Vixen looks sooooo much better with a black radome.

Nice vid. Love the Mutiny On The Bounty score music. Someone has a sense of humour.
