On July 24 2010, the LPG’s Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) hangar was officially declared open by David Walton, whose family owns Bruntingthorpe airfield.

The Q-Shed is a relic of the Cold War period and was originally located at the end of the main runway at RAF Wattisham, Suffolk. It housed a pair of Lightnings and, at a later date, Phantoms which were held at ten minutes readiness to launch against Soviet aircraft.

Our brace of Lightnings in the Q-Shed will form the nucleus of a unique Lightning Museum, further enhancing the Walton family’s Cold War Jets collection which is located at the airfield.
