[edit] Information

The English Electric Lightning was the RAF's first and only all-British supersonic fighter. This 'Cold War Warrior' was conceived in 1947 and remained in operational service until the late 1980's. Ferocious and unforgiving to fly, and built around a powerful weapons system, its pilots were the undisputed elite heirs to the Spitfire and Hurricane pilots of the Battle of Britain.

LIGHTNING INTERCEPTOR puts you in the cockpit of this classic British fighter and reveals what it was really like to fly on operational service. Made with unprecedented access to the English Electrric and British Aerospace archives at Warton, LIGHTING INTERCEPTOR features much rare and exclusive film footage, Farnborough appearances, live weapons practice and in-flight refuelling.

The makers of the DVD have also been granted unprecedented access to the film archives of No 74 Squadron at Wattisham for operational film materials, while ex-squadron members provide fascinating first hand accounts of what the Lightning was like to fly. Other highlights include a full technical walk around and exclusive interviews with 'Bea' Beaumont, Air Vice Marshal John Howe and chief test pilot Eric Brown, who compares the Lightning with other jets of the era - including rival Soviet interceptors - which he tested.
