The awesome English Electric Lightning - the last all-British supersonic jet aircraft. Lightnings carried two different types of missile - the Firestreak and the Red Top. This aircraft has Red Tops attached to both sides, with a Firestreak on the floor. The Red Top was easily identifable from its rounded tip (the Firestreak has a very pointed nose). Although capable of travelling above Mach 3, the Red Top had a nasty habit of shearing off its fins if fired from a supersonic Lightning.
