"Interceptions of a friendlier nature became common- place as superpower tensions thawed in the late-1980s. RAF and Russian aircrew would then hold up Playboy centrefolds against the cockpit canopies of their aircraft as they passed each other."

"Yup, and you're still in F3s eh?"

The Lightning used to chase Concorde and overtake it! British Airways once let some Nato fighters have a go at chasing one and the Lightning F.6 was the only one to be able to reign it in and overtake it .... then the pilot had glide home with no fuel lol.
