The shapes created on the drawing boards and in the wind tunnels of English Electric, Vickers, Avro and BAC have ended in some pretty strange places. Bryl-creemed and tweeded up, the pipe-smoking aeronautic engineers of the 50s could not have predicted the future fictional life of their creation.
Often piloted by overly-sexualised teenagers in spacesuits, many British Cold war aircraft have earned starring roles in Japanese cartoons. Kind of mental, but I like it. Speaking of mental, this ‘Super Lightning’ is pretty insane.
