This particular thread is all about stories and incidents which occured to

Lightning Pilots. When I am at a loose end I keep coming back to this thead,

to read their fascinating experiences.

PostSubject: Another story. Lightnings Stories from the Archives. Empty2009-08-02, 14:07

When the Gas Rigs first appeared in the Irish Sea off the Lancashire coast, a certain Warton Test

Pilot who was renowned for doing interesting stunts went out into Morcambe Bay and circled one

of the rigs on full reheat a number of times, The Supervisor on the rig contacted Warton ATC,

asking if the pilot of the Lightning could go elsewhere as it was shaking the rig structure and even

more importantly all the night shift were awakened from their slumbers.

The same Pilot went to Barrow in Furness the home of Vickers, "The Ship Builders" as he flew up

the estuary he buzzed a Submarine which was entering port with the crew all lined up on the deck

next to the conning tower it was alleged that he flew as low as the conning tower and the ships

company were spreadeagled on the deck. The Lightning was going so fast that there was no clear

identification as to where it was based but it was suspected as coming from Warton.
