The Story of the English Electric lighting.

The English Electric Lightning was the RAF’s first and only all-British supersonic fighter. This “Cold War Warrior” was conceived in 1947 remained in operational service until the late 1980’s. Ferocious and unforgiving to fly, and built around a powerful weapons system, it’s pilots were the undisputed elite, heirs to the Spitfire and Hurricane pilots of the Battle of Britain.

Lightning Interceptor puts you in the cockpit of this classic British fighter and reveals what it was really like to fly on operational service.
