The Line in Winter- English Electric Lightning
English Electric Lightning 11 & 5 Squadron LTF RAF Binbrook Aviation Art Print Painting by Artist Chris French
The 'line' at RAF Binbrook in the mid 1980s during the latter years of service by the iconic EE/BAC Lightning interceptor.
The Lincolnshire airfield was often bitterly cold and the groundcrew had to keep these complex aircraft serviceable come rain or shine.
The painting is a testament to the aircraft, those who flew them and those who kept them flying.
This print has been produced with the full support of the Lightning Preservation Group who maintain two of these fantastic aircraft for fast runs and we have produced the prints in three editions:
