Finally, the full 30 minute film uploaded for all.
This video was primarily used for RAF recruitment in the 1980s, and follows IX Squadron as they go through the process of receiving a tasking, briefing, planning and then executing a full interdiction mission, including aerial refuelling and being bounced by 'hostile' fighters, in the form of the USAF F-5E Aggressor Squadron that was based in the UK at the time.
If the Cold War had turned hot, this is the kind of operation the RAF would have been called upon to perform, flying low and fast to deliver nuclear weapons or runway denial ordnance.
