Electric Starter - Making History!
The first ever engine test of a Lightning with Electrically-Started engines! This really is a great moment in classic aviation history, as it's never been done before, not even by the RAF!
This modification will ensure a prolonged future for the aircraft in a ground operational capacity.
In order to Preserve History, you must sometimes Make History!!
