Footage of the first English Electric Canberra taking flight. It's interesting to see that it's using a grass runway, something I didn't know, let alone appreciate. Did operational Canberra's still  have such grass field take off and landings capabilities?

Yikes!  The good news is that the pilot survived...I am afraid his underwear was a a total loss though.

Unfortunately the touch-down is hidden behind the mast base but it looks like he came down fast with his starboard wing low & hammered the deck with that side's gear, which collapsed. There seems to be the possibility that he managed to hook his wheel on the last arrestor wire, too. It was a fairly poor landing from the beginning, given the relatively calm waters.

Definitely a brown pants moment.

An interesting video from Red Flag showing a ground-based air defence system struggling to electronically track and engage a manoeuvring C-130.
I think this video footage only reiterates to me the lack of modern anti-aircraft artillery in most Western militaries, which could and would have been able to engaged the C-130 visually....🤔
