Lightning F.52 52-610 at Riyadh, 9th August 2007; Brian Mouat

Built as an F.2 and first flown on 24th April 1962, XN770 was delivered to 33 MU at RAF Lyneham but remained there in storage and was never issued to a frontline squadron. BAC purchased the airframe back and converted her to an F.52 and sold her to the Saudis in May 1966, who initially operated her as 52-656 but later as 52-610.
