Buccaneer S.2B XV333 at Yeovilton, 25th October 2007; Damien Burke

Above is the Fleet Air Arm Museum's XV333, which is the first aircraft you see on exiting the 'helicopter ride' to the Carrier exhibition. Still dripping oil after several years in the museum (the reason for the sand on the deck below her), and looking like she's just come out of an overhaul - makes you want to jump in and crank her up! XV333 served with the RAF after the FAA gave up its Buccaneers so it has very much 'come home' to Yeovilton.
