Fly to the Edge of Space Edge of Space Cape Town Fly to the Edge of Space

Fly 60,000 feet high over Cape Town in the legendary English Electric Lightning. The supersonic British fighter climbs toward space with amazing speed. Often compared to the F104 Starfighter that NASA has used to train astronauts for space travel, the Cold War-era Lightning can climb upward at an incredible 50,000 feet per minute.

There are only four flying Lightnings left in the world and they're all in Cape Town, waiting for you.

"The horizon is a pronounced curve of light blue becoming progressively darker until directly above, a circle of black sky appears, and with it, the edge of space." ~ Rupert Smith, Lightning alum

~ Thunder & Lightnings, UK
