              This is the alleged aircraft museum from Jim Mansfield's original plans for the airport.His friend, Christy Keane, pilot and sundry colector of aviation junk,is the alleged driving force behind the alleged project.

                  I dont know if its flying or not
                  Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
                  Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
                  The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
                  The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
                  The best lack all conviction, while the worst
                  Are full of passionate intensity.

                      Some background....

                      Blackburn Buccaneer S2B, XV863 (B3-12-67), noted on static display at Lossiemouth Families & Friends Day in 2005. By that time the aircrafts desert camouflage applied during the first Gulf War is almost bleached white by the sun after spending several years as Lossiemouth's gate guard following her retirement and was replaced by a Tornado. This 1991 Gulf War veteran is named "Debbie" and "Sea Witch" and carries appropriate nose art. The aircraft had been in storage at RAF Lossiemouth in recent times see

                          Hi all
                          When the one-time Blackburn Buccaneer was being prepared for it's entry into service, way back when, it is alleged that a submission was made to their Lordships of the Royal Navy that the new aircraft be called the ARNA, which was said to have stood for Another Royal Naval Aircraft.The proposal went upstairs and disappeared into the bureaucracy.It reappeared after a time, covered with stamps and signatures, with a REFUSED note attached.It was explained that calling one of HM's aircraft the "Blackburn Arna" was not in keeping with naval tradition....

                              Hard to give an exact price, as many such aircraft are sold at auction. One Buc was up for sale on the Disposal Services Agency website a year or so ago.

                              I know there is a Bucaneer at Bournemouth Airport that was taxied up and down on a regular basis. Not sure if it still dose.
