Some, such as the Hawker Hunter, Avro Vulcan, English Electric Lightning and Hawker Siddeley Harrier, were world-beating fighting machines in their day. Others, such as the Supermarine Swift, proved to be spectacular failures. All were flown by highly skilled pilots, sometimes under the most unusual and demanding of circumstances.
