The restoration team at Newark Air Museum in Nottinghamshire have been applying the finishing touches to the collection’s Blackburn Buccaneer S.1 XN964. The rare de Havilland Gyron Junior-powered S.1, a former Fleet Air Arm high speed low-level strike aircraft, has recently had squadron markings applied, and now carried the same insignia it wore with 736 Squadron, the Fleet Training Unit, at RNAS Lossiemouth, Scotland, in 1965. It also served with 801 and 803 Squadrons during its career with the navy, plus it spent time as a trials platform. www.newarkairmuseum.org
