The Lightning Boys 2

ISBN: 9781909166134

Author: Richard Pike    Publisher: Grub Street

The sequel to the best-selling The Lightning Boys, Lightning Boys 2 is a must-have companion and continues the tales from pilots and other crew connected with this iconic aircraft, giving a rare insight into postwar fighter operations. In 20 separate stories to intrigue, amaze and amuse, the book has also been complied and written by Richard Pike.
The reader is taken to situations intercepting 60 plus enemy aircraft, a desperate struggle in a cockpit flooded by tropical downpours, the difficulties of being affected by sudden toothache at high altitude, and the curious encounter with an unidentified flying object. Yet another chapter paints a dramatic reconstruction of a scene in Germany when a Lightning, having entered an inadvertent, out-of-control spin, began an earthwards plunge towards a town centre.
