About Us

The Anglo American Lightning Organisation (AALO) was founded in 1997 by Andrew Brodie, Jon Roth, Phil Wallis, and Max Waldron.

For a number of years we have been working towards returning to flight an English Electric Lightning T.5, XS422. The operation has been taking place at Stennis International Airport in Mississippi, USA, where the rebuild of Lightning422 is well underway. The project is manned by professional engineers who selflessly give up their time to return the aircraft to flight.

In May 2017, Lightning422 taxied for the first time in 30 years, and did It again in 2018. This year, we plan to go one step further and fast taxi down Stennis International's runway. You can keep up to date with progress and news updates via our online social media accounts on Facebook, and our YouTube channel.
