 A pair of 29 Squadron Lightning F.Mk3s tuck their gear up and head skyward from the Wattisham tarmac in the summer of 1972.

QRA Scramble by Ivan Berryman. (GS)
£250.00
A pair of English Electric Lightning F3s of 111 squadron depart. Reheat selected, they accelerate rapidly to blast off, cascading spray from a rain-soaked runway. This is the classic interceptor, with superb handling qualities and unmatched climb-to-height performance. The Lightning is the only British-designed and built fighter capable of achieving twice the speed of sound. The RAF took delivery in 1960 and they remained in front-line service until phased out in 1988. The last of the classic single-seat fighters, the Lightning enters the hall of fame alongside the Camel, Fury, Hurricane and Spitfire. The artist was once able to fly a two-seat version- Lightning T5- at just over 1000mph- which he describes as an unforgettable experience.

Thunder & Lightnings by Gerald Coulson.
£170.00
 Originally conceived by Sir Frederick Handley Page as a jet bomber as long ago as 1945, the project that would evolve into the HP.80 was to become one of the RAF's most enduring types. Named the <i>Victor</i>, the prototype first took to the air in December 1952, entering service with the RAF in 1957.  Incredibly, the last <i>Victor</i> was retired in 1993, the type having metamorphosed from bomber to tanker in the course of its long career, perhaps its most notable achievement being support for the longest-range bombing mission in history when a <i>Vulcan</i> bombed the runway at Port Stanley, Falkland Islands, in 1982, flying from Ascension Island.
