Man that Buccaneer is such a cool plane! Very nice to see it still going. If you have more pics, please post them. Thanx for these!
If you can't fix it with a hammer, its an electrical problem!

Was die vorige keer daar toe Thunder city se Lightning gesneuwel het. My ouers werk albei op TVOS, as ek eendag weer kans kry, sal ek uit ry soontoe en die fotos kry en upload. Laasjaar was daar 3000 something odd fotos.
I'm not saying kill stupid people, I'm saying, remove the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

Nice pics, thanks. What is the history of the Buccaneer, does it still belong top the SAAF? I recall something about a civvy buying one with a view to restoring and flying it. Lovely aircraft.

I recall reading that the Thunder City operation went belly up. Have they been rescued/resurrected?

Hi-jack off
