Buccaneer S.50 421 at SAAF Swartkop, South Africa; Louis Vosloo

Like 416, 421 is pictured at the time of her retirement and is today still in the same colours, though 421 is preserved at Swartkop. Unfortunately since this picture of 412 was taken the aircraft's condition has deteriorated. The paint is faded and the canopy discoloured and on top of that a storm collapsed a tent on top of the aircraft - now aerials are bent, pitot probe broken off and the starboard intake cowling is missing.
