The Just Flight English Electric Lightning F.6 captures all the brutal power and awesome presence of this phenomenal aircraft.

The first and last purely British-built supersonic Fighter and Interceptor, this hugely powerful aircraft was a potent symbol of the Cold War and was designed to be on high readiness to launch at a few minutes' notice.
