Buccaneer S.2B XX899 at Newark Air Museum, 23rd June 2019; Jake Wallace

Robin Phipps bought the nose section of Buccaneer XX899 and had loaned it to the Midland Air Museum where she was on display. The cockpits appear to be in good shape and Robin retained enough of the fuselage to allow the canopy to be slide open correctly and has kept the nose in good condition throughout its stay at Coventry. In October 2018, Robin moved XX899 to Newark Air Museum where she is on long-term loan to the museum. As you can see in the photo, she is currently under going a repaint and can be seen today lined up with several other cockpits also on display at the museum outside Hangar 2.
