XK533 - National Museum of Flight (reserve hangar), East Fortune, Lothian, Scotland
Buccaneer S.1 XK533 at the National Museum of Flight, East Fortune, May 1997; author
Hidden away in the reserve hangar at the National Museum of Flight at East Fortune is this Buccaneer forward cockpit section. Used for several years as a sit-in exhibit, it's mostly gutted with the instrument panel represented by a painted wooden panel. Finally the museum decided that it was looking a bit too tatty so they moved it here and intend to restore it. The ejector seat's a bit of a mystery - it has a Lightning serial marked on it for a start! Apparently she's now in 'deep store' due to "health and safety issues".
