On Saturday 29 March, at Bruntingthorpe, the Buccaneer Aviation Group will be hosting a special event to mark two decades since the type’s retirement.
All the details are on the poster below and this is looking like an unmissable event at what has undoubtedly become one of the most important sites for preserving the UK’s aviation heritage, especially that from the Cold War era.
Nowhere else in this country can you see so many different types in a living and breathing condition, all of which are lovingly maintained and cared for by a dedicated bunch of volunteers.
Events like this not only provide a superb opportunity to get up close to these aircraft and see them moving on the ground, but also provide vital funds to enable groups like the The Buccaneer Aviation Group to keep them running. A couple of years ago GAR was fortunate enough to try the Bucc out at first hand, and it really is an impressive machine, as our exclusive video demonstrates:
GAR will hopefully be reporting from the event and we look forward to seeing you there.
