Blackburn Buccaneer aircraft transported by road to Yorkshire Air Museum
9:35am Saturday 17th August 2013 in News
THIS Blackburn Buccaneer XV168 jet aircraft will make an unusual sight on East Yorkshire’s roads tomorrow when it is transported by road from BAE Systems at Brough, near Hull, to the Yorkshire Air Museum, near York.
The convoy will set off at 7am and take three or four hours to reach its destination at Elvington.
The Buccaneer was the last true Blackburn aircraft to be designed and constructed at Brough, before the company merged with Hawker Siddeley and then became part of British Aerospace/BAE Systems. It became the company’s most successful and longest serving type, with 35 years of service to its credit.
The Buccaneer design underwent development trials at Elvington airfield and the company’s site at Holme-on-Spalding Moor.
