British Phantom Pilot, DVD

British Phantom Pilot DVD


A look back at the role that the American-built McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom played within the RAF during the cold war.

Widely regarded as the most successful fighter plane in history, the Phantom entered service with the RAF and Royal Navy in April 1968, as a replacement for the ageing BAC Lightning, following years of distinguished service in the Vietnam war.

This title comprises three films: 'Phantom Pilot' (1973) follows the trainee pilots as they progress from basic Chipmunk trainers to become fully qualified Phantom pilots; 'Oversight' (1976) is a training film based on a true story, demonstrating how, through a series of errors, the RAF lost a Phantom; finally, 'Low Flying Training' (1971) follows the training given to navigators to allow them to fly 'under the radar'.
