Two of the Most Famous Fighters of the Royal Air Force

Two of the Most Famous Fighters of the Royal Air Force

In the foreground a Griffon-Engined Supermarine Spitfire of WW2 and behind, the English Electric Lightning T5 XS449 photographed at RAF Coltishall in Norfolk in the 1960's. The Spitfire was built in many marks and in large volumes. This Lightning T5 is one of only 22 which were built at Warton. It is hard to come to terms with the fact that there was less than 20 years between these aircraft designs. The maximum speed of the Spitfire was 375 miles per hour. The maximum speed of the Lightning exceeded 1500 miles per hour. This historical image is held inside my personal collection.
