Hello everyone.

This is my first post on the buccaneer society forum and its a pleaseure to be apart of it.

I am from the Gatwick Aviation Museum in Charlwood in Surrey and im part of a small team who is restoring Buccaneer S.1 XN923 (currently running both gyron juniors). We have recently removed and replaced the port engine with a low hour gyron junior which was kindly donated to us. Initial engine runs have progressed smoothly and indicate only a minor difference in throttle rigging from the starboard side. Our main task at the moment is to stabilise the corrosion starting with the gear bays. We will be trying to recover the hydraulic system to operate such systems as the wing fold, bomb bay, air brake, hook and flaps however this will take a back seat to any corrosion which is found on the airframe.

I hope this is one of many new updates from us here at the gatwick aviation museum and it is a pleaseure to be restoring such a wonderful aircraft.

Hello Ashley, thanks for posting your update, sadly there aren't many updates on here anymore as most are now done on the TBAG site. More spam than info nowadays. Keep up the good work, regards Paul.

Hello Ashley,

As Paul has already mentioned this site doesn’t get that much use anymore as we have relocated here:

www.thebuccaneeraviationgroup.com

and here:

http://tbag.conforums.com

Please let me know if you would like me to create a thread for XN923 in the ‘restorations’ section?

Regards, Francis
