Buccaneer S.50 422 at Johannesburg, 9th April 2001; Karl Eklund

Here is 422 at the Saxonwold War Museum. 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. Normally protected from the elements by the half-hangar you see here, this sort of protection is really a must with the bright sun in South Africa, but even so the the starboard side of the canopy, exposed to the bright sun through most of the day, is now clouding over.
