Lightning Pilots and their aeroplane,
This review is from: The Lightning Boys: True Tales from Pilots of the English Electric Lightning (Hardcover)
Anyone interested in an era when the UK had a number of aeroplane manufacturers (before BAE bought them all and duly closed them down aided by government)this book stands out as a shining example of what we could produce. Perhaps not quite the best fighter aeroplane in the world but the most exciting. This book comes with the riveting tales from the pilots who flew them - what fun and hairaising excitement it must have been.
