Yes the flower spike on this orchid was about 4ft/1.2m long.

Well that's either a very willing orchid, or great growing!

I don't think it's too unusual. I've seen some very long flower spikes on orchids growing outdoors in the trees at the San Diego Zoo.

I planted one that has grown quite a bit on the porch the last couple of years,on a Trachy palm in my backyard. So far only the trachy fibers and sphagnum moss seem to be enough. I used the boot from a King palm and cut down to hold the Orchid in place. Rube Goldberg style.
