Buccaneer S.50 422 at Johannesburg, 16th September 2014; Alan Wilson

422 was at the latest modification status at the time of retirement in 1991 but (like 412) has been repainted in the scheme used when Buccaneers were first operated by the SAAF. She is protected from the elements by the half-hangar you see here, which is a must in South Africa due to the sunlight, but even the starboard side of the canopy, exposed to the bright sun through most of the day, has sadly clouded over. Overall, 422 is fairly complete and in good condition.
