Buccaneer S.2C XV344 at Farnborough, 22nd March 2003; Tom McGhee

'Nightbird' had a long and productive life carrying out various trials work, among her last duties being the trialling of Night Vision Goggles hence her name. Retired in the early 1990s she has ended up on permanent display at the Qinetiq complex at Farnborough - sadly out of public view.
