Buccaneer S.2B XX893 at Forres, May 29th 2000; Bob Lawson

This one's in a sorry state. It was originally bought from the scrapyard with the intention of making it the focal point of a new Garden Centre. However the plan fell through with the nose section moving to a paintball site in Perth. Thankfully she's not become a target and is to be found with the 'Puzzle Zone' on the site. Previously thought to be XX892, the new owner of the nose thought to be XX893 has found that his nose is almost certainly XX892. This means that this one can't be XX892... and comparison with photos of the aircraft in service would tend to indicate this one is actually XX893.
