Interesting video angle, that first vapour shot almost seems to originate from around the left aft fuselage area.

I watched G-HHUN taxy out from Bournemouth as a 4 ship on that fateful day only to return back down the taxiway with an electrical tech issue, aircraft shutdown, dropped a panel behind the where the gun pack was located, quick rectification, startup fast taxi and caught up with others en-route to Biggin.

As it left the apron it started venting fuel from the port side of the fuselage under the wing trailing edge, at the time it was thought to be normal as the aircraft departed the apron very quickly in a right hand turn, I personally witnessed the whole event up close from about 10 feet away, the rest was history.
