It may be a cut down shadow of its former self, but this forlorn cockpit section came from the last production English Electric Lightning interceptor to be manufactured - ZF589. The airframe was an F53 variant (essentially an export version of the F6, built for Saudi Arabia and issued the RSAF serial 53-700). Though the majority of exported Lightning F53s first flew in 1967 and 1968, ZF589 didn't take to the skies until 1972. According to the Lightning Association website, ZF589 was a partially built airframe which was ultimately completed to replace another F53 (serial 53-690) which crashed. Whether ZF589 was initally intended for ground static tests only, I'm unsure (perhaps one of our readers can fill in the blanks?!). Either way, the airframe discharged her duties and returned to British Aerospace's Warton airfield in 1986, along with other surplus F53s, and placed in storage with just over 2045 flight hours on the clock. A decade later she became one of several Lightnings reduced to cockpit sections only at Pinewood Studios for the 1997 movie Wing Commander (the remainder of the airframe was scrapped). After filming, ZF589's cockpit ended up in a paintball field before being rescued by a member of the Gatwick Aviation Museum, where it's pictured last year under restoration. 🇬🇧 #aviation #aviationlovers #aviationlover #aviationinstagram #aviationphotos #aviationgeek #aircraft #aircraftspotting #aircraftlovers #planes #planefan #planelovers #planefans #airplanes #planespotter #planespotting #avgeek #avgeeks #instagramaviation #militaryaviation #militaryaircraft #warplanes #aviationdaily #aviationenthusiast #gatwickaviationmuseum #englishelectric #englishelectriclightning #lightning #cockpit #fighteraircraft

The Sukhoi Su-27 is a Soviet-origin twin-engine supermaneuverable fighter aircraft designed by Sukhoi. It was intended as a direct competitor for the large United States fourth-generation fighters such as the Grumman F-14 Tomcat and F-15 Eagle, with 3,530-kilometre (1,910 nmi) range, heavy aircraft ordnance, sophisticated avionics and high maneuverability. The Su-27 was designed for air superiority missions, and subsequent variants are able to perform almost all aerial warfare operations. It was designed with the Mikoyan MiG-29 as its complement. #sukhoi #su27flanker #su27 #ussr #ussraviation #f14tomcat #f14 #f15eagle #f15 #airsupierority #russia #russianjet #russianairforce #instagramaviation #aviationhistory #aviation #aviationphotos #aviationpics #aviationdaily
