Very Loud Two English Electric Lightning Aircraft With Full Afterburners
The English Electric Lightning is one of the aircraft that we haven’t talked about earlier. This very powerful fighter aircraft was built by the British and served as an interceptor. Electric Lightning was used in the 1960s, 1970s, and in late 1980s and the last flight took place in 1988. This fighter aircraft is considered as the only UK-designed-and-built fighter that also can fly as fast as Mach 2.
Including the prototypes, 337 English Electric Lightnings were built and this beast is powered with Rolls-Royce Avon engines. Royal Air Force, Kuwait Air Force, Royal Saudi Air Force were the primary users of the aircraft, and the Royal Air Force replaced the EE lightning with the Tornado F3s as an interceptor variant of the Panavia Tornado.
This very powerful aircraft has an insane climb rate and because of that the Royal Airforce Pilots recalled the experiences with the EE lightnings as “being saddled to a skyrocket”. Listen to this very loud Rolls-Royce Avon 301R turbojets of the English Electric Lightning from the following videos.
