Tim (or anybody?)

do you have any information about the Lightnings in the flypast at the funeral of Sir Winston Churchill in 1965? I've been trying to find out about them for many years. I've seen reports that there were 16 a/c, and similar reports saying there were 4 a/c.

I'd love to see something written about that.

(slightly off track) ... I can remember reading about somebody who had a massive collection of photo's of every single F-4 Phantom that was ever built - except one - and I wonder if anyone had ever considered doing a collection/publication of similar photos of the Lightning (just a few less to consider!). Ex-jockeys would be able to see pics of the aircraft they flew, and 're-live' the contents of their log-books. Does such a thing exist?
