Blackburn Buccaneer XN979 Cockpit

This was the response from young Marcus, head of the Blackburn Buccaneer XN979 Cockpit Restoration Project published on his Facebook page.

Another exciting arrival this week was a box containing these.

Marcus was very surprised and thrilled by the surprise donation of 4 useful hydraulic pressure gauges. The central one we purchased is from XV353 so after we've replaced the glass it'll be good to reunite it into his Buccaneer cockpit. A grateful thanks to Alex, Marcus looks forward to showing you the cockpit when you visit.

Donated by World War 2 Relic Hangar (proud sponsor of the Aircrew Remembrance Society)
— feeling happy.

I am always happy to assist anyone I can in support of an aircraft restoration project. Aircraft preservation is an important link to remembrance. The preservation list of the societies support in this field continues to grow and I am happy to follow in my fathers foot steps in the preservation field.

The Societies long history of support in the role of aircraft preservation and restoration for the last five decades continues with this instrument donation by our webmaster, Alexander King for this flying Hurricane rebuild, V7497.
