Buccaneer S.2B XX888 at Barnstaple, October 2008; Anthony Lee / Blackburn Buccaneer Society

XX888 is in a pretty good condition with only the Machmeter missing from the cockpit along with the refuelling probe. It has had a repaint started ("Gulf War" colours) at its previous home in Dundonald but has now moved on to a new owner in Barnstaple; Tim intends to carry out a full restoration.

Tim, I have noticed that the Buccaneer is still there, is there any chance of obtaining this for 20 Sqd, we are having a new building built and this once restored would be the ideal gate guardian, a project for our Duke of Edinburgh award team
