I know this is not a video, but someone sent me this picture of HMS Hermes returning from the Falklands campaign and getting a flyby from a Victor Bomber and some Harriers. It looks like a scan from a newspaper, but what I find interesting is the Victor Bomber. I've mentioned this plane in previous posts. It looks wholly predatorial, from any angle. Strangely beautiful in an 'Oh F***!' sort of way.
By that stage, Victors had largely given up any ideas of actually bombing anybody. Refuelling was the main activity.
Fantastic pic of the fly by, but most probably a K.2 Tanker from its duties at Ascension.
Completely agree with you, the lines and shape of the Victor is menacing from any angle...
