TBAG Buccaneers XW544 and XX894 are on the move


Recommended Posts

You may be aware that there have been some big changes at Bruntingthorpe where we run our 2 live Buccaneers. This is the note on our Facebook page.

The Buccaneer Aviation Group

Published by Andrew Webber · 9 hrs · 

The Buccaneer Aviation Group is very pleased to announce that our new home will be Cotswold Airport – Kemble

As many of you will know Kemble has been home to some of the Buccaneers before, following retirement from the Royal Air Force. And we look forward to making some more Rolls Royce Spey noise there for you all to hear !

Following consultation with Cox automotive at Bruntingthorpe a timeline is in place that will see us vacated and in residence at Kemble before September 30th.

 

In the next few hours and days you will see that we have been busy preparing for this and will be launching a crowdfunding scheme with some exciting rewards for our supporters to help us achieve our goal and allow the aircraft to continue to move under their power.

 

Transport quotes are already being received and we really do need your help !


The Buccaneer Aviation Group will be able to continue to hold taxi days and other events at Kemble to fund our continuing existence and we have also agreed to provide active care for the Canberra pr9’S , Hunter T7 and Gnat already in residence.

 

We are extremely pleased to have found a new home where we can continue to keep the history alive, and thank you in advance for any help given.


We will of course keep you updated as the move progresses and hope to see you all at Cotswold airport.

Fold everything for under deck stowage and load it tail first on a step frame trailer. Leave the gear down, and make a cradle for the trestle points. That's how the RAF moved them. Wish I had a photo of the one we moved to Lossie.

Thank you for your donation - I hope to see you at Kemble once we are there and setup. Exciting times.

One topic on this please, and in the right area would help as well.
