This is the first issue with a special silver foil sleeve and b-side listed as "Experiments In Vertical Takeoff".

The 12" stained glass sleeve design has three variations:
1st issue (this entry) - silver foil (mirrored) sleeve (sword and wings are silver foil), silver foil back, b-side listed as "Experiments In Vertical Takeoff"
2nd issue [r1813426 - silver printed sleeve (sword and wings are printed silver), white back, b-side listed as "Experiments iIn Vertical Takeoff"
3rd issue [r1813429 - white sleeve (sword and wings are white), white back, b-side listed as "All The Things We've Done"

The single was originally to have featured a B side track titled “Experiments In Vertical Take Off.” The song hadn't actually been written at the time, but merely existed as a title. The single sleeves were subsequently printed with this title, but Andy and Paul had decided against the idea, and chose a brand new song called “Navigation.”

The original sleeve design for the 12" version used an embossed coin motif on a silver foil sleeve. The band weren't happy with this design, which led to the new stained glass version. A limited number of the coin foil sleeves, however, were issued.
