Bac Lightning F.2a - XN728
This iconic aircraft may be better known as the Lightning at the side of the A1 at Newark, Notts. The cockpit has been saved by a private collector with the idea of restoring her to her former glory. The restoration has started on the aircraft and we await the final results, which given the owners extensive knowledge of Lightnings, will be fantastic.
