The awesome English Electric Lightning.
Gerald Coulsonís dramatic painting Bolt for the Blue, published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first flight of the Lightning, captures the very essence of this formidable fighter.
Seen climbing out of RAF Wattisham, a Lightning F.3 of Treble One Squadron scrambles to intercept an unidentified intruder plotted on the RAFís early warning radar. Almost certainly it will be Russian, probably he will be escorted out of harms way, but the interceptor is armed with a pair of air-to-air missiles just in case. The Lightning was a Mach 2 fighter and has a unique engine configuration. It is a twin engine bird, but the engines are positioned one atop the other, instead of side by side.
