Withdrawn from service by the RAF in the 80's, six English Electric Lightnings were purchased by a wealthy tax exile, from Binbrook squadrons Nos 5 and 11, all F-6s & T5s. They were flown into Cranfield and regularly ground maintained by RAF personnel for some time. The dream to fly them was thwarted by either the refusal of the CAA to issue the necessary licence, or the high maintenance costs, and the aircraft were eventually sold on.

An ex LTF Binbrook T5 seen here in very poor external condition after Arnold Glass failed to gain approval for civilian flight. Later sold to Tony Hulls at Cranfield and restored to taxyable condition. Finally purchased by Mike Beachyhead and fully restored to fly as ZU-BBD with Classic Jets at Cape Town.
