Buccaneer S.1 XN957 at Fleet Air Arm Museum, 25th October 2007; Damien Burke

XN957 made its first flight on 3rd April 1963 and was then delivered to the Royal Navy later that year. The airframe then made its last flight in September 1974 and was delivered to the Fleet Air Arm Museum the same month.

Around the 1990's XN957 was put in to storage for a few years before being put back on display where it was joined by Buccaneer XV333, making the museum the only place in the world where you can see an S.1 and S.2B parked side by side.
