Buccaneer S.2B XX888 at Barnstaple, October 2008; Anthony Lee / Blackburn Buccaneer Society

XX888 is in a pretty good condition with only the Machmeter missing from the cockpit along with the refuelling probe. It has had a repaint started ("Gulf War" colours) at its previous home in Dundonald but has now moved on to a new owner in Barnstaple; Tim intends to carry out a full restoration. Since 2009, XX888 has been chopped right through the bottom of the cockpit section, unfortunately the cut doesn't seem to have been done with much care or sympathy. A few years back XX888 was put up for sale and is still up for sale today.
