Photo Comment

To mark the end of the Buccaneer's military career, 208 Squadron, the RAF's last remaining operator, displayed some of its aircraft in the markings and colours of the type's former operators, including 809 Naval Air Squadron as represented here. Callsign "Mission 019B", XX894 was taking part in the first Joint Maritime Course of 1994, and the last such exercise the Buccaneer would take part in.
