Buccaneer S.2B XX892 at Portmoak, 11th November 2004; Eoin McDonald

Eoin McDonald & John Morgan took delivery of the cockpit section of what was thought to be XX893 in mid November 2004, and she was being stored at Portmoak airfield in Fife, with the plan being to restore her over the next few years, bringing her up to a good display standard so that she could be placed in a museum or other suitable indoor establishment where the general public could have a look at her. However plans changed and Brian McLain bought her, intending to install a flight simulator setup in the cockpit. Plans changed again and she was sold to Henk de Jongh in 2010 and then onwards to to the current owner who transported her to Germany. Inspection of her data plates and comparison of the paint scheme with photos of XX893 being scrapped would tend to indicate that the nose was actually from XX892, not XX893.
