Visit to Cape Town to fly in Buccaneer ZU-BCR.


Dave Webber, Francis Wallace and Colin Robinson from The Buccaneer Aviation Group (www.TheBuccaneerAviationGroup.com) where invited by Mike Beachy Head and Ian Pringle for the experience of a lifetime – a 55 minute flight each crewing the back seat of Buccaneer ZU-BCR. This was in recognition of the groups work with Buccaneers XW544 and XX894 based at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in the UK and the close relationship that has been built between the respective groups Buccaneer jets on all matters of preservation.

 

We cannot praise highly enough the level of safety and professionalism shown at all times during our 2 days at Thunder City from the safety briefings and requisite tests through to the ground crew, the safety officer and the pilots themselves– it certainly felt like we were in the Air Force! At all times it was clear that we were operating at the highest standard of operation under the demanding rules of the aviation authority

 

These flights took place on November 1st at Cape Town International in glorious flying weather – not a cloud in the sky.
