Blackburn Buccaneer S.2 High-Speed Ground Run

Thanks to Andy Laing from Aviation Trails for providing the following footage of a Blackburn Buccaneer performing high speed ground runs at Bruntingthorpe last year. Sadly, this is probably the closest we will ever get to seeing this amazing machine come to flying again in the UK. Even so, the raw power of this incredible aircraft can still be appreciated and its good that younger generations who may not remember seeing these aircraft flying can at least experience it running under its own power.

Thanks Andy.

    • I only ever saw one flying once. I was at Swansea airport doing my gliding scholarship with 636 VGS of the Air Training Corps and one of the lastr ones in the UK flew over in test colours. It was awe inspiring
