As the only all-British built Mach 2 plus capable fighter aircraft, the English Electric Lightning occupies a unique place in aviation history and remains one of the finest achievements of the British aviation industry. Possessing incredible performance, this Cold War warrior entered service in 1960 and became Britain’s primary interceptor for the following two decades.

In its originally intended role as a ‘Supersonic Dash’ interceptor, the English Electric Lightning was quite possibly the finest aircraft ever produced and very much ahead of its time. Although now sadly consigned to the pages of aviation history, for anyone lucky enough to have seen a Lightning display at an Airshow, it remains as one of the most exciting aeroplanes man has ever produced.
