You are right the Lightning flights are not available in SA anymore but what a machine
I know a BA Captain who used to fly them.
I was up at Doncaster and saw them Roll out the Vulcan Bomber another creation from a previous era then picked up the Citation and flew to Filton where Concorde sits on the end of the runway.
What a crime selling off Filton to be turned into housing.
Never mind I am sure they will call the streets Concorde Avenue, Airport road etc
Think we have lost a lot in creativity, imagination and pure passion from those pioneering days and superb creations which were made all those years ago.
Just imagine what the test pilots from those eras were like?
Oh well progress?? I expect give it a few more years and we will have priced and regulated GA out of the market too in our big brother and liability society!
As for the RAF maybe we might all be recruited as some sort of call up Dads Army to patrol our shores in 152s
