Of all the classic fighters to have served with the RAF since the l950s, no other aircraft had the raw power and breathtaking performance of the Lightning, and of all the variants the F2A was considered to be the best. We are pleased to introduce LIGHTNING THUNDER, a magnificent limited edition print in Michael Rondot's CLASSIC COMBAT AIRCRAFT series. Once again, he displays his unique artistic talent to a sensation of brute power and atmosphere in his portrayal of a No.19 Squadron Lightning F2A on take-off.
