Apart from the P-51 Mustang, this is my all time favourite jet fighter. There's an airworthy 2-seat version in South Africa which you can pay to fly in and go ballistic and I think there's an airworthy single seater in Canada. I wish I could get to Brunty Cold War jets open weekend to see the EE Lightning, Victor tankers, F58 Hunters, Buccaneers (that's how much pirate earrings cost . . a buck an ear) and all the other stuff. Must be a toggers wet-dream!
