Appearing at the RNAS Yeovilton airshow with an RAF Hercules in the original camouflage and a pair of Buccaneers blasting off behind. At the time of the photo in service with 14F (Landivisiau and aboard the carriers 'Foch' and 'Clemenceau'), no. 17 is now on the dump at AIA Cuers in southeastern France, where 17 of the original 42 French Crusaders were modified to F-8P specification with improved avionics and ejector seat in the 90s
