Details
The English Electric Lightning was a cold war-era supersonic interceptor, intended to protect the UK from Russian nuclear bombers, and it remains the only all-British fighter capable of speeds in excess of Mach 2. A pair of mighty Rolls Royce Avon engines ensured a staggering rate of climb with near vertical take off possible; however, the vast fuel consumption limited the aircraft's range. Lightning F3 XR749 is regarded as 'the best of the best'; now preserved at IVGTS in Peterhead, Scotland, she holds a special significance having 'won' a contest to catch and overtake Concorde and also having intercepted an American U2 spy plane at 66,000ft, a height which they had previously considered safe.
Now you can own, and wear, a piece of that remarkable history. These cufflinks are designed, made, and hand finished by expert UK jewellers entirely from aluminium recovered from the tail fin of Lightning XR749 during preservation works. They are presented gift boxed, and supplied with a certificate of authenticity.
