Chris French FGAvA - The Line In Winter - English Electric Lightning (W)
English Electric Lightning 5, 11 Squadron LTF RAF Binbrook Christmas Card by Chris French FGAvA
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.
