The oldest surviving Blackburn Buccaneer S1 and the first Brick on charge with the Royal Navy, XK532 served with 700 and 809 NAS and was based at RNAS Lossiemouth in Moray, Scotland. After a spell of development work at MOD West Freugh she became a ground instructional airframe and later served as the Lossiemouth gate guard. Replaced by a newer Bucc (which was itself later replaced by a Tornado GR1), XK532 was sold to a private owner and moved to the Highland Aviation Museum on a small trading estate at the edge of Inverness Airport. The aircraft wears the code LM-632 and the markings of 736 NAS of the Fleet Air Arm. ⚓️🇬🇧 #aviation #aviationlovers #aviationlover #aviationinstagram #aviationphotos #aviationgeek #aircraft #aircraftspotting #aircraftlovers #planes #planefan #planelovers #planefans #airplanes #planespotter #planespotting #avgeek #avgeeks #instagramaviation #militaryaviation #militaryaircraft #warplanes #aviationporn #blackburnbuccaneer #buccaneer #royalnavy #highlandaviationmuseum #invernessairport #fleetairarm #classicjet

"The 🇬🇧 Fleet of an Empire" - (Part 6 = The replenishment and merchant ships that were needed by the BPF and its "Fleet Train") •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - 🇬🇧 The Royal Navy heavy repair ship HMS Artifex (F28) was initially deployed to Manus in the Admiralty Islands, from where she supported the ships of Task Force 57 in the Pacific Theatre of operations. www.navy.gov.au/history/feature-histories/british-pacific-fleet -------------------------------------------- In February 1944 the Admiralty estimated that the Fleet Train for the British Pacific Fleet (BPF) would require 134 merchant ships, of about 1½ million gross tons. As only 20 ships could be provided "in due course" the remainder would have to come from: the United States, the Admiralty's resources (although only a "handful" of its 560 merchant ships were actually available), or the general pool of merchant shipping (on which there were "many demands"). And the Admiralty requirements increased from 80 ships (totaling 590,000 tons) in January 1944 to 134 then by the end of March 1944 to 158 ships. -------------------------------------------- Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill had been alarmed for the original requirements for 80 ships, and on April 9th 1944 he issued a minute defining the limits of the Fleet Train for the BPF based on a minimum of 24 million tons of imports "this year" He referred to the Royal Navy getting 230,000 tons of new merchant shipping in about a year. The minute referred to operations "in the Indian ocean or in the South-West Pacific", reflecting his own preference for "Operation Culverin" against northern Sumatra and Malaya rather than the "Middle Strategy". #The🇬🇧BritishPacificFleet

Early morning on the French coast! #Stunning

Everytime I stare out onto this coastline I give a thought for those fantastic brave soldiers of the 1940s, without which the world as we know could have been a very different place

@brimstone24actual snapping, so close dude 🙌🏻💀🖤#sineatersguild #hangedman #youareyouractions

My latest escapade took me to Liverpool yesterday. There were three ships in at the Prince's Dock, I'm not certain of the names of the other two, but the Royal Navy frigate was the HMS Somerset which we were allowed to go on board.

It's a type 23 frigate as I recall, could have that wrong though. Whatever the case they're very impressive ships and the crew were very welcoming, so thanks to them I guess.

Some of the other pictures were from the Museum of Liverpool, which is also an awesome place to visit. All in all, a good day was had by all.
