COLD WAR JETS AUGUST 2018
Simon Kershaw's Story
On 11th November 1974, around 4.45pm, Buccaneer XV351 was flying a routine weapons sortie over Wainfleet range on the Lincolnshire coast. It had taken off just after 4pm from RAF Honington – the lead aircraft of three Buccaneers from 809 Squadron – with an experienced Royal Navy crew. It was dusk, very cold, but visibility was good and there was only a light wind.
XW544 Andy Davie's & Steve Kershaw's backseat ride
A special day for XW544 being 45 years since she first set to the skies. As usual XW544 performed flawlessly in her Anti-Det run.
