home of the RAF Lightning's of no 5,no 11 and the Lightning

RAF Binbrook as an airfield is in a sorry state.runways and taxyways gone and the site is a haulage yard. Lightning F6 XR724 is looking sad and unloved despite flying home to Binbrook in 1992 after Warton finished using it as a chase aircraft for radar tests. it was hoped it would remain flying on the airshow circuit if the C.A.A. would allow. which they didn't. after runways and taxyways were ripped up and disputes with the new land owners, XR724 sits stranded,needing massive amounts of engineering,time and love to see it hopefully join Bruntingthorpe's 2 fast taxying Lightnings.
