Episode Summary

EDIT
Operation Flamingo
AIRED:
A revolution is taking place in Nabutu and 20 British Archaeologists are attacked by rebel aircraft, meanwhile, the British government has requested a cease fire in order to fly in medical aid. Group Captain Christie has been given the task of rescuing the archaeologists based upon his recently developed idea for a Rapid Reaction Force consisting of 3 Harriers, 3 F4 Phantoms, 2 C130 Hercules and 3 Helicopters. A Hercules is therefore sent in to evacuate the dig team with air support provided by the Harriers and Phantoms however, tanks and aircraft are moving towards the British position as the rebel troops and the Nabutu government forces prepare to resume fighting following the cease fire.moreless

      • Christopher Villiers plays a military pilot in this episode; he later plays an airline pilot, Captain Nigel Croker, in the series Mile High.

      • The mix of aircraft on a single squadron would never have taken place in reality. The logistical support required to enable the vastly differing types of aircraft to carry out their tasking would be enormous. Small deployments of aircraft could take place however they would each be supported by their primary squadron. The deployment of a small number of aircraft is usually named a "Flight" and not a "Squadron".
