Buccaneer S.2B XV359 at Topsham, October 2008; Anthony Lee / Blackburn Buccaneer Society

As you can see the sea air at Culdrose did no favours to an aircraft displayed out of doors! Just a few years ago this aircraft was immaculate, having been beautifully restored and put on display near the viewing area at HMS Seahawk. Having been put up for disposal in early 2005, in April of that year she was acquired by a private owner near Exeter and moved to his premises shortly afterwards. As you can see she is still in dismantled external storage.
