Members of the RAF, having just served in Iraq, decided to liven things up a bit by doing a spoof video of Queen's 1979 hit "Don't Stop Me Now" at their base in Qatar.

RAF Top Guns act like Queens of the desert in a spoof music video – wearing just their undies.

The foursome sang the camp band’s hit ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ in blazing Qatar.

They stripped off to act out the 1979 classic, sung by Freddie Mercury, feet from a jet’s afterburners, in showers and sat on loos.

It includes the line: “I wanna make a supersonic man out of you”.

The airmen enjoyed their lark during downtime after serving in Iraq.

Colleagues from II (AC) Squadron were the audience.

An RAF spokesman said: “The video raised morale.”

Ironically, the squadron was paid an official visit at its Norfolk base on Monday – by the real Queen.
