What would you do with a million dollars? Buy a supersonic fighter jet from the Cold War era of course.
That’s exactly what this guy did when he purchased an English Electric Lightning, the first aircraft in the world capable of supercruise.
It is the only all-British Mach 2 fighter aircraft and was the first aircraft in the world capable of supercruise. The Lightning was renowned for its capabilities as an interceptor, and pilots commonly described it as “being saddled to a skyrocket”. Not bad toy if you got the money!
