Lynx Video Footage

#1
Hi guys,

I am putting a together a little project and am appealing to you all to send me some footage so I can do it justice.

Some of you may have seen the video "Helo Thunder" and I thought it a shame that we didn't have an equivalent. If you have been to the DAAvn Flight Safety Roadshow and had to watch the American vdieo as an intro to UK flight safety then you will know what I mean.

I love flying the Lynx (especially the Mk 7 - Mk 9 just looks ...well...gay.) and have been filming the exercises and ops for the last 3 years and am putting it together with this aircraft in mind.

If anyone has some good footage of the aircraft in action or doing its thing then if you could send it to me I would really appreciate it.

I am after TOW firings / impacts, GPMG with visible tracer / impact, formation flying and the holy grail of Lynx footage - a thrust reversal. If all QHI's could stop sputtering and send in any of this AWESOME manoeuvre that would be great.

I have approached the SAAVn Media Centre but they didn't seem to have a huge selection of stuff.

The max filesize for my inbox is 10MB and I am using clips of 5 secs length or less to keep it punchy. I would like to avoid mobile phone video as it is too low a resolution.

The address is lynxtributevideo@hotmail.co.uk and I don't work for Westlands!! :D

Any other suggestions/ footage would be appreciated! As far as the soundtrack, I am struggling to think of a better tune than ACDC's "Thunderstruck". "Shook Me All Night Long" is too short for the footage that I have already! Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help (off to PPRune!)

You mean this one, from YouTube?

Also this on YouTube . . .

Another . . .

669 Balkans

More . . .

Waddington 2006 Blue Eagles (poor quality)

I'll do some searching and see what I can find - apologies in advance for any duplications (too much better than not enough, though, don't you agree?!)

By the way - are you likely to make the completed vid available in the public domain? Either here or on armyaviation, perhaps?

Regards,

PP

Loving the awful cover version of 'Danger Zone' in the trial video...

You can open an account, and send the footage to your own e-mail address.
Or a friends etc.
