Lightning T5 - XS420

Those of you that know Murray Flint,  expert Jabiru finisher and painter among other things, will know of his rather unusual garden ornament.

The RAF have asked if they could borrow this fine example of an English electric lightning for their static flight line display at the Fairford Airshow this year.

Here you see photos of the aircraft being loaded and taken away to Cranwell for preparation for the show.
