Corgi AA28403 English Electric Lightning F.6- XS904 / BQ- RAF No.11 Squadron- Binbrook- August 1987- "The Last Lightning Show"

During the Last Lightning show at RAF Binbrook on Saturday 22nd August 1987, in one final Lightning base scramble, all serviceable Lightnings blasted into the air one after the other with the first aircraft returning seconds later at 90 degrees to the runway, passing overhead the next aircraft taking off before pulling in a steep climb in full reheat. The undoubted highlight of the day was a series of beautifully flown formation passes performed by nine Lightnings, in what proved to be a fitting tribute to the Royal Air Force career of this supersonic sensation.
