The ground-breaking design concept of the Lightning was so revolutionary that there were serious doubts within the British aviation establishment as to whether it would even get off the ground, never mind become the front-line fighter for the RAF. Two (Prototype) P1 experimental aircraft were commissioned that went on to vindicate the design and pave the way for the superb Lightning and its nearly 30 years in RAF service.
