The Blackburn Buccanneer from the Planes of Fame series

The “Buc” was a low level – high speed attack aircraft – on the deck operations at high speed can be done by a number of aircraft – two that come to mind right off the top of my head are the F105 Thunderchief and the F4 Phantom – and both did it with sheer brute force – Hell a B52 will do low level but it is not something you want to make a habit of – the F111 and the B1 are capable of low level penetration but live down and dirty on the deck like the Buccaneer did – the”Buc” did it with elegance . . .

Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
