Anyone have a link to the infamous Cranwell F4 flypast?
I have just taken the tour of CHOM at Cranwell and mentioned to my friends accompanying me the infamous F4 graduation flypast. They would love to see it and asked if there is a link to it anywhere on the web. I have Googled it and cannot find it. Anyone help me?

The video used to be shown at the Flying Supervisors' course. IIRC, it was held at Cranwell.

Having seen the video of the second F-4 appearing around Whittle Hall in wing-rock, descending and then selecting full A/B before bottoming out at 72 ft a.g.l., it looked like a very close call and nearly an horrific accident....

This one?


Or lower?

Thank you. I was just wondering.

Are we talking about the one where the jockey was a certain Flt Lt J...s? Up for promotion but it got kind of delayed?

FarWest 18th Mar 2015 12:22

I saw it
I was there. It was lower than the Lightning on YouTube and the F4s came in over the Orange.

If anyone has a decent copy they could PM me with I would be most grateful. I was the cadet standing in front of No. 2 flight with a pointed stick (and one of the few who kept his hat on).

I liked the last part of the video, where the SNCO went around the parade square, picking up SD hats. :E

Only the idiot flying at stupidly high AoA and full A/B will truly know how close he came to wiping out the parade, spectators, reviewing officer, College WO and half of College Hall......


FarWest 18th Mar 2015 15:45

Beagle is right. I was watching from Whittle Hall and thought he was going to hit College Hall.

I'd be mildly surprised if the CWO didn't survive.
