Here at Historic Racer we love aviation, especially Cold War jets. The tragedy of losing one of the South African based Lightning fighters a few years ago appeared to have put paid to the Lightnings and Buccaneers in South Africa. But it appears not.

Let’s hope that it marks the return of regular Cold War Jets flying once more.
