Woohoo, must have been great to see/hear ! Nice to see she is still airworthy, what about the rest of the fleet though ?? Think I saw somewhere that they had been re advertised for sale again, not sure where. Any idea, Oli ??

Haven't a clue about the rest of them... hopefully someone with lots of money will buy them!

Presumably they failed to recieve any bids that reached the reserve or they just had timewasters! :D

So Oli, are you bidding again? :-o

It was Ian Pringle and Mike Beachy-Head in what was XX987,there are some better pictures close up and in cockpit around on the web if you go looking, say at the buccaneer aviation group facebook page. Not many though.

The aircraft are all still up for sale as individual lots now, The jets are still flyable just not for financial gain as they used to be.

I posted this here some time ago Jocelyn...

BTW from what I hear, from people who know a lot more about their condition than I do, the Lightnings are unlikely to ever again, attain a 'Permit to fly'.. ANYWHERE... :(
