Lightning F.1 XG331 at the Jet Age Museum, 2nd November 1997; author

It might not look like much now, but the Jet Age Museum's Lightning F.1 cockpit section was once part of one of the development batch of F.1s. Now it's not much more than a shell unfortunately, with most of the interior of the cockpit missing. Hopefully it will be restored to its former glory and if they do a job even half as good as on their Canberra, it'll be superb. Unfortunately the museum has been forced to shut its doors by the airport authorities who wanted to demolish the hangar that the museum use, so for the time being this aircraft is not accessible.
