Buccaneer S.2B XV168 at Brough, October 16th 1999; author

Previously displayed within BAe's airfield at Brough - the home of the Buccaneer - was XV168. The aircraft is is good condition and carries a dummy laser designator and ECM pod on the wings. the engine intakes and exhausts are blocked by plexiglass that has frosted a little making it hard to tell what is behind them. The cockpit looks to be complete. The gear and the doors are a little rusty but otherwise the aircraft is in good condition and, having now been donated by BAE to the Yorkshire Air Museum, is a possible candidate for returning to taxiable condition.
