Fascinating view of the past

Well, if you view the dim dark past as 1973 and 1978. Two videos that are worth a look - the first for what technology was like 35 years ago, and the second for what then navy was like 40 years ago.

I enjoyed those. Thanks for the links.

The Blackburn Buccaneer was quite a cool aircraft. In spite of being a sub-sonic plane from the late 1950s (OK improved in the 1960s), and not really bleeding edge (the UK Labour party cancelled the TSR2), it sort-of did the job and it was still being used in Gulf War I. It was designed specifically do do what's shown in the video.
