Returning to Flight English Electric Lightning XS422

Thank you for your virtual visit to the restoration of English Electric Lightning, XS422 ... and welcome especially if you are finding us through the recent articles in Aviation News, or the RAF News

Formally with the Empire Test Pilots' School at Boscombe Down at Wiltshire in the UK, XS422 is a 1960's British Cold War Intercepter, an English Electric Lightning.

If you'd like to support the project we currently have a Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign running.

Outside of the Kickstarter, if you would like to support the project financially with a donation or to join our growing international Supporters Group (currently just 300 for a lifetime membership) then you can do so very easily via PayPal to our Supporters Group. Please be sure to include your contact details so we can thank you or log your membership.
Alternatively if you live in the UK, you can send a cheque payable to "AALO Ltd" to 51, The Grove, London, N3 1QT
