Lightning Visitor

It is always a pleasure for the Museum when it has the chance to reunite visitors and aircraft. One such opportunity arose in September when Chris Carr-White visited. Chris started his RAF career flying Hunters with 14 Squadron in 1961 before moving on to 111 Squadron where he flew the Lightning between 1964 and 1966. From there he took an exchange posting with the USMC and flew their Phantoms for a further 2 years after which he returned to the UK eventually ending his RAF flying career on the British Rolls Royce Spey engined Phantom. Our pictures shows Chris standing by the Lightning and reunited with a Lightning cockpit for the first time in nearly 40 years as he looks into the Museum’s F53 Lighting ZF578.
