Buccaneer S.2A XT284 at Felixstowe, 15th April 2007; Nigel Goodall/Blackburn Buccaneer Society

XT284 was scrapped at RAF St. Athan and the nose section is the only remainder. Some damage to the intakes and fuselage sides was caused, and where it was separated from the rest of the airframe she was a total disaster area. Acquired from Hanningfield Metals by Glenn Cattermole, he has been busy restoring her ever since and has refitted the radome and intake nacelles, repaired much of the damage and his restoration is about 85% complete. Work will soon start on repairs to the skin on the lower half of the nose.
