English Electric Lightning

by

Tasked with intercepting Russian aircraft, jet fighters manufactured by English Electric Lightning were the mainstay of Great Britain's air defense during the Cold War. Renowned for their high speeds and incredible climb rates, Lightning's aircraft were ideal for the operation. Illustrated with more than 170 black-and-white and color photographs, this fine record of the last truly great all-British fighters also features appendices listing squadrons, production figures, and individual aircraft histories.
