Lightning XG 337

After looking at some of the pictures I have taken at museums and battlefields I thought I would pick out some of my favourites and give a little more information about the subject . 
This photo is of English Electric Lightning XG337 .
This particular Aircraft was the last of the development batch of F.1s, and first flew on 5th September 1959. She was mainly used for Red Top missile trials both at Warton and Boscombe Down, and also received the square topped fin as part of trials for the forthcoming F.3. Retired to ground instructional use as 8056M at Cosford and later Halton, she returned to Cosford when earmarked for preservation ,and has been suspended from the roof of the excellent Cold War Exhibition
