This is one of my favourite photographs of 74 (Tiger) Squadron from RAF Leuchars intercepting a Soviet "Bear" in British airspace.

If you look carefully you will see the Lightning banking over the Soviet is on reheat.

I've watched them scramble on reheat, it was a fantastic and amazing sight.

Beautiful aeroplane.
