A former RAF Airframe Mechanic’s recollections of a classic jet fighter aircraft

In this entertaining technical guide/memoir, Peter Bunnett looks back on his eventful years as an Airframe Mechanic in the RAF during the 1960s and 70s, when he was fortunate enough to work on one of the most iconic jet fighter aircraft of all time – the English Electric Lightning.
