English Electric Lightning.

This page is specifically for parts and information on the Lightning, for other English Electrics please see the main Aircraft parts adverts page.

Ads for Lightnings.

On Classic Aircraft are several hundred pages, enabling restorers, owners and people working on older airframes to advertise for parts that they need to keep a particular English Electric Lightning in airworthy, or preserved static, condition. The full list of aeroplanes covered by this free service can be seen on the main ads page. Please only submit Lightning advertisements on this particular page.

Enthusiasts for this type of English Electric can also advertise here, or on any of the other historic aircraft pages. Researchers looking to find out the history of Lightnings can submit Information Wanted notices here, as can modellers seeking details of a particular variant of this airplane. If you want to buy books on this aeroplane, or aviation in general, check out the links to Amazon on this page.

Elsewhere on this aircraft website you'll find a large gallery of photographs (I can't guarantee any photos of the Lightning, but if you have any by all means email them over!) and stories sent in by pilots and aircrew of yesteryear.

If you wish to place a free notice on this page, simply fill out the form a little further down this page and submit it. If other English Electrics also interest you, remember to have a look at those pages too within this parts and information section.

Please note: due to issues with spammers, email contact addresses have been removed and from now on only telephone numbers will be published.
