Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book. The photos within are mainly taken by pilots or ground crew which provide some superb shots. If you want real action photos and wonderfully evocative shots of a great aircraft at work then buy his book. Some of the best are the take off photos on a wintry morning or of a formation take -off taken from the lead aircraft seconds after rotation - Fantastic! If you are looking for more than posed air to air shots I would recommend this.

If you were fortunate enough to have seen (and heard) the EE/BAC Lightning in service, and appreciated its phenomenal performance, you will want this book. If you weren't that lucky, you must buy it. An excellent selection of photographs, particularly Tony Paxton's air-to-air pics., and informative and sometimes amusing captions and anecdotes, make this a super study of the aircraft. I'd better order another copy before I wear mine out......

Fantastic. I stunned to find a Lightning book better than Lightning Force, bit it is, if only just. No narrative as such, but some very full captions with anecdotes and life stories for many of the airframes pictured.
