Default Fighter Pilots BBC doumentary series

As above. I’d never heard of it before last weekend and came across it on YouTube. It was made in 1981 and follows the initial training from first interview of several applicants from the 1978 class at Henlow/ Linton. Think of it as a British precursor to Jetstream. It’s only 8 episodes of half an hour each, well worth binge watching it in an afternoon.
I’d never seen it suggested on here before so thought I’d put it up. Enjoy. (But beware there are probably more moustaches than is absolutely necessary! - Don’t want you all having nightmares do we!)

I'll be sure to search for and watch that. If you're lost as to what to watch next after that;

RAF training, from Chipmunk to F-4;

Nice one. I put that on watch list too. There also one called Jet Set GR4 OCU course that looks interesting.
