English Electric Lightning je bil dvomotorni prestreznik britanskega proizvajalca English Electric (pozneje British Aircraft Corporation). Po izgledu je precej podoben Migu-21, je pa imel za razliko dva motorja in je poletel približno leto in pol prej in sicer 4. avgusta 1954. Največja hitrost je bila okrog 2 Macha, imel je tudi možnost superkrižarjenja - letenje pri nadzvočni hitrosti brez uporabe dodatnega zgorevanja. Več kot 20 let je bil glavno prestrezniško letalo Kraljeviih letalskih sil (RAF). Uporabljali sta ga tudi Saudova Arabija in Kuvajt. Skupaj so zgradili 337 letal.

Poganjala sta ga dva turboreaktivna motorja Rolls-Royce Avon, ki sta bila nameščena en nad drugim - posebnost pri lovcih. Naklon krila je bil 60 stopinj. Lightning je bil izjemno hiter in se je hitro vzpenjal, je pa imel majhen dolet.
