XW530 - Ian Aitkenhead, Buccaneer Service Station, on the A941/North edge of Elgin, Grampian, Scotland
Buccaneer S.2B XW530 at Elgin, September 2008; Francis Wallace / Blackburn Buccaneer Society
XW530 here saw service in the Gulf - and gained the Sky Pirates flag marking along with Glenmorangie
as her tipple (many of the Gulf War Buccs were given not only names but also marked with the names of detachment personnel's wives or girlfriends and a particular drink). XW530 now indicates her history with a Sky Pirates flag and mission markings on her starboard nose. The shark mouths on the slipper tanks are a more recent addition! She's obviously well looked-after, as despite many years on display here she is only looking a bit faded but otherwise quite spick and span.
