    Default Runaround with raf lightning!

    HI

    ANYBODY REMEMBER THE CLIP FROM MIKE REID'S RUNAROUND FROM ABOUT 1979 - THEY BROUGHT ON AN RAF ENGLISH ELECTRIC LIGHTNING PLANE COMPLETE WITH PILOT!?!?

    I WAS (AND STILL AM!) INFATUATED WITH AIRCRAFT, AND I WOULD NOT SHUT UP ABOUT IT FOR DAYS! ANYONE REMEMBER IT OR EVEN HAVE A CLIP, WOULD "looovvvee" TO SEE IT AGAIN?

    Yes! His wife was not very pleased about it (shame!) no one seems to remember the mike reid runaround one though, surely it must have been filmed on an air base for them to have towed the lightning in?

    I tried youtube but nothing found so far.Not many people had video recorders back then.I'll keep my eye out for a clip.I used to watch Runaround myself as a kid.

    Runaround (UK game show) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Aparently most episodes got wiped because they had no commercial value.Only a few clips are on youtube such as the metal mickey techno special.Check link for more details.More stuff might be held by private collectors.check out this forum that i am a member of as it might help.
