Lightning F.6 XS932 at Walcott, 14th March 2009; Richard Scarborough

Having spent a period on display at the Shoreham Museum of D-Day Aviation, XS932 went into storage on the North side of the airfield by kind permission of the Thomas Collection of Military Vehicles for some time afterwards. This was because Shoreham authorities threatened to scrap it in December 1999 if it stayed in the 'back garden' of the D-Day Aviation Museum, as it was in the way of an extension to their taxiway! Charming treatment for a Lightning nose that is restored and internally complete. After that she was loaned to the Farnborough Air Sciences Trust for a while and then sold on to new owner Neil Airey, his second Lightning acquisition. Stored for a while in Darwen, Lancs, he has since sold her on to Retro Aviation in Shropshire who sold her on to her current owner in early 2009. As you can see she is now undercover and Richard also has an original ladder and Aden cannon.
