Not usually on display, this beautifully-restored Lightning nose section is often seen at Bruntingthorpe's open days. Although wonderful (and only 50p to pretend to be a supersonic fighter pilot), it's a crying shame that the rest of this glorious aircraft has been scrapped. She has been purchased from the RAF for intended civil flights, however the CAA scuppered that plan and she was broken up at Cranfield.
