Product description

Having been commissioned by Haynes Publishing group to produce a book on the English Electric Lighting some time ago anticipation has been high on what was to become the ultimate tribute to this iconic fighter.
Sadly, Haynes decided to move away from aircraft manuals and Ian Black was left with the decision to cancel the project or continue to publish it under the Firestreakbooks label. Haynes were very generous and gave the author full permission to continue the work, something that had already been a five-year project. Finally, the ultimate guide to the Lightning is available. Lavishly illustrated in full colour the book brings together a stunning collection of images , mostly unseen as well as a plethora of rare memorabilia and diagrams from official sources. A book that will appeal to enthusiasts, modellers , pilots , engineers and general aviation aficionados demand is sure to outstrip supply. With its " retro " style cover the book is lavishly produced on fine art paper and bound in cloth hard back – a true collector's piece. The first print run is limited to 1500 signed and numbered copies so don't delay in buying this limited run.
The book is 156 page,  a large increase from the standard of 128 pages at no extra cost –
