LPG Double Reheat Twilight Run - Bruntingthorpe Airfield 07/11/15
The Lightning Preservation Group at Bruntingthorpe Airfield in Leicestershire
held a unique Twilight Photo Shoot on Saturday the 7th of November 2015.
This one was a bit different in that XS904 & XR728 were both to run at Twilight at the same time
The Photo Shoot was held to raise money for the Lightning Preservation Group.
The LPG now has 3 English Electric Lightnings, XR728 & XS904 which are the F.6 variant,
and the new aircraft belonging to the group is Lightning F.3, XR713, which is the last uncut F.3.
Money was being raised so that XR713 can be kept under cover & protected from the elements.
What a day it was & with the torrential downpour in the morning it was amazing the event went
ahead at all, but shortly after midday the rain stopped & the heavy grey clouds disappeared!!
