The way that video is edited made me think someone was filming aircraft all day, then spliced it together to make it appear like a dogfight. But then I saw the Vulcan smoke and then the target aircraft in flames. Gunzo.

What's the backstory here?

If you watch it on YouTube it has this in the description:

Thanks Arthonon. After reading your post I searched it to learn more (surprised I've never seen this footage) and some claim it was an AIM-9P, but I think it's clear this was a gun kill. It was one of two OV-10s (along with a Tucano) that were shot down by Loyalist forces during the coup.

Yeah, I had no sound. But could see the smoke on the centerline, not out on the wings.

Too bad the wrong side won eventually....

"Imagine opening your door to get the newspaper and witness a dogfight "
Probably an everyday occurrence for my Father posted adjacent to North Weald Airfield, my Mother living in East London and firewatching of a night in the City environs during July-October 1940!
