Good afternoon.
Well where do i start.There is so much to say about this aircraft.
Having waited on a rain soaked RAF Waddington most of the day.The sun did come out.And XH558 made her maiden public display.And a site it was to behold.

I am in a lucky position being a part of the Lightning Preservation Group at Bruntingthorpe to see XH558 whenever i want.But to be at Waddington which was her home and mine many years ago was special for me.

This is about the best shot i could get given the conditions weather wise and the immense crowds she attracted.

I hope you like this one.

Jim

Great to see her back.
I last saw her at Leuchars.....taking off into zero visibility cloud....we had to take the commmentator's word for it that there was a message in the bomb bay saying "farewell" !

Fingers crossed for Leuchars this year.
