Jaguar flight safety video

Hi,
New to this forum but I'm searching for a copy of the (1980s?) flight safety video involving a dramatised Jaguar crash. I think it might have been called distractions. Involved pilot getting so distracted about everything that he forgot to take his pin out of the seat. Is anyone able to point me in the right direction please?
Thanks.

I think I may have a copy on VHS, will check in the loft when home next but that is not planned until June, in the mean time I will enjoy the sunshine !

Happy days at Colt when that was made......

I remember a similar film at the same time about a Harrier det to Belize. What was that called?

Is the reason they don't show the Jag film anymore because it reflects, perfectly, daily routine, nowadays?

That's because its films of the 1980s. Dr FOD was a bit before that (saying that I don't think its in the 1970s collection either).

Dr Fod & the Wayward Body is on You Tube albeit with Swedish subtitles. I downloaded and my young trainees love it!

MAINJAFAD,

I'm curious that the 2 Disc DVD Set you've pointed us to is available through a Railway Video web site. Did E-goat really send you there or did you just happen to have clicked on the site "by accident"? Just wondering.

CM, found it after looking in the warfare history forum (used to be a big poster on there, but haven't really looked on there for ages). Used the link that was on that Forum. The film I was after was the 1982 Intercept, which covered UK air defence with footage from Boulmer, West Ranyham (some good footage of Bloodhound 2), one of the Jock Rapier sqn's and 56 Sqn doing Q at Wattashambles. Plus the inside of the Soviet Badger being the Valiant while it was still a gate guard at Marham. The Watchdogs film on the first disc also has some good Bloodhound footage from 25 Sqn A Flt at Bruggen (plus lots of Jag action on that film as well).

Define Irony,

Several years later they would remove the carts so you couldn't bang the ECM pods off, because it was costing too much and they were running out of them.

The real irony is 12 years later it did happen for real, a Jaguar crashing on takeoff due to possible pilot distraction the start of the takeoff run.

Does the wayward body video have any sound, or just the Swedish subtitles (but not like in Holy Grail). i cant get any sound but the pictures are good! Silly me- I guess I was distracted. Mute system failure. Problem solved.

Saw this today in the BFI Museum shop on the south bank and snapped it up. Just played "Hazardous Ops" to Mrs Bclass to show her what I did in a former life. For those without the DVD, this particular film features Winsor Davies hamming it up as an army RSM attempting to explain the dangers of operating a/c from a HAS. Anyway, Mrs Bclass, being Scandinavian, does not always get the humour or the references. Imagine the fun I have just had explaining this:

"That land_rover was given to me by Colonel Quick-Jodrell..."
