Looks a pretty standard take off to me. If you want to see something exciting then look up a Lightning scramble or a V force QRA scramble now that's what you call performance.

I remember when the aircrew wanted to play so we prepped a mk1A with no ventral tank, missiles or refuel probe :D

I must admit the Lightning T5 is a favourite of mine seems to look better than the single seater in my view.
