Yes, a delightful clip - but that was not the original Airforce.
The clip you have posted is Airforce2 where Graham Bond took lead vocal duties along with Baker, Diane Stewart and Catherine James.
The original line-up was this bunch of luminaries:
Ginger Baker: Drums, percussion, African percussion, tympani, vocals.
Denny Laine: Guitars, vocals.
Ric Grech: Bass guitar, violin.
Steve Winwood: Hammond Organ, bass guitar, vocals.
Graham Bond: Hammond organ, Alto saxophone, vocals.
Chris Wood: Tenor saxophone, flute.
Harold McNair: Tenor & Alto saxophones, Alto flute.
Jeanette Jacobs: Vocals.
Remi Kabaka: Drums, percussion.
Phil Seamen: Drums, percussion.
I am yet to come across anybody else who was there - despite the Royal Albert Hall been packed to the rafters
By March 1970 they had a different line-up
..and the nearest they got to playing in the USA was a few gigs in Germany (but not the original line-up)
For those one or two that may be interested:
