This comment is correct. I saw 6 of them do this for (I think) the Commonwealth Games in 1982. People up to sixty miles away saw the lights, and many reported UFOs.

This is afterburner torching or a "dump 'n' burn". The F111's fuel dump outlet is between the afterburners - allowing the afterburners to ignite the stream of dumped fuel in a spectacular and awe inspiring thunderous display. Scared the bejesus outa me when I first saw it. The whole night sky bloomed red and a deafening thunder punched the air. Our RAAF pilots do this for celebrations and special events. We love it. Sadly - the F111's will retire - to be replaced by F/A 18 Super Hornets. I prefer the Sukhoi Su-32.

That's no afterburner. That's a flame-out. Not good!
