The Midland Air Museum, Coventry has preserved an example of the F.6 version of the BAC (formerly, English Electric Co Ltd) Lightning. Even today the aircraft looks 'modern', with its highly swept wings and angular lines. The last of the RAF's interceptors, and a classic jet fighter. Please note that the 'thumbnail' photograph shown here is of a preserved Lightning F.1, on display at the RAF Museum, Cosford, as part of the National Cold War Exhibition.
