A rather ironic story for this Lightning. Once the proud gate-guard at RAF Coltishall, she was moved here for renovation and eventual display as an aviation monument on a roundabout in Farnborough. Since arriving she was lent to the BBC, who lied by saying that Jeremy Clarkson owned it. Now the funds for the Farnborough project have dried up and British Airways (the owners of Booker) want her off their land. If £20k cannot be found, she will be scrapped. Perhaps Clarkson could stump up the funds?
