Film Number:ADM 6379
Other titles:THE ROYAL NAVY IN THE GULF, 1990-1991 [Allocated Series Title]
Summary: HMS Jupiter leaves Jebel Ali for a routine patrol.
Description: Commander Wright cons his ship as she leaves Jebel Ali. General bridge scenes. Sequence showing the loading of the sextuple Sea Wolf launcher. Each missile is brought forward on a trolley, the rear doors of a launcher cell are opened, and a portable ramp attached so that the missile on its trolley can be aligned with the cell and hand-winched into position - the slowness of this manual procedure is well emphasised. Aerial sequence from the ship's helicopter as it circles HMS Jupiter (F.60) Sequence shot inside the helicopter on the flightdeck - the crew are from 829 Squadron. LA from flightdeck as Lynx 443 takes off, then cut to landing with MS of FDO - a GPMG on a AA mounting is visible in the background.
