Synopsis: A celebration of the Lightning aircraft from those who have worked with the classic fighter. The book contains a description of the rigorous training syllabus taught by the Lightning Training flight to newly arrived pilots on frontline squadrons. Details of "Saturn" intercepts, the most demanding of all sorties flown by Lightning pilots in mock combat are included, and pilots of number 5 and XI squadrons reveal how the Lightning compared with its NATO "foes". "From the cockpit" text, as told by veteran interceptor pilots, includes a dramatic ejection from a blazing aircraft, and the appandices detail the disposals and ultimate fates of all aircraft utilized by the units at Binbrook, the last Lightning base.

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
