Re: Cold war, Hot jets

I remember most of these when they were in service. Shows, my age. While motorcycling I was once passed in a valley in the North Yorks Moors by a German Starfighter, I was half way up the valley side and he was lower than me! I thought the end of the world had come it was so loud!

Britian built some lovely looking Aircraft back then, the Hunter was the best looking jet ever in my opinion and the Lightning is still a thing of awe and wonder. Sad that they were all warplanes but good that the ultimate war of nuclear destruction didn't happen!
