The Last of the Light Brigade" is a poem written in 1890 by Rudyard Kipling echoing – thirty-six years after the event – Alfred Tennyson's famous poem The Charge of the Light Brigade. Employing synecdoche, Kipling uses his poem to expose the terrible hardship faced in old age by veterans of the Crimean War, as exemplified by the cavalry men of the light brigade who charged at the Battle of Balaclava.

The Lightning is unquestionably Britain's most-loved jet fighter, particularly among the fighter pilots who flew this celebrated aircraft. In continuous front-line service with the RAF for nearly thirty years, the passing of the Lightning represented the end of an era. It was the last of a rare breed: single seat, entirely British, magnificently overpowered and possessing delightful handling qualities. It was radically different, its vertical twin-engine design, slab-sided fuselage and highly swept wings making it stand apart from all others. Built by craftsmen, the Lightning was a privilege to fly. This pictorial tribute to the Lightning concentrates on the final two years of service at RAF Binbrook, as seen through the lens of the last pilot to convert to the type, Flt Lt Ian Black. During this time he was granted access to all aspects of the aircraft, both on the ground and in the air. Because of his status as a pilot, fellow squadron aircrew felt totally at ease with his requests for air-to-air photography. This unrivalled access has resulted in a unique collection of stunning color photographs.
