XX900 was delivered to 208 Sqn at RAF Honington on 24th November 1976 and was one of ten Buccaneers to take part in the Red Flag 77-2 exercise in 1977 from Nellis AFB in the USA. It was for this exercise that XX900 was repainted in a desert camouflage scheme of sand and dark earth. During her RAF career she also served with; 12 sqn, 216 sqn and 237 OCU.

Following withdrawal from service, the aircraft was flown to St Athan on the 6th April 1994 for decommissioning, having flown for a mere 3450 hours and 35 minutes. The aircraft was subsequently purchased by C Walton Ltd and returned to full ground running condition.

XX900 has remained a mainstay of the Cold War Jets Collection, an active aviation museum, for the past 26 years, delighting the Public with its performances at their Cold War Jets open days at Bruntingthorpe.

In Mid-2020, the decision was made to move XX900 to Tatenhill Airfield in Staffordshire. The Airfield was built in 1941 as RAF Tatenhill and was used to train Bomber crews during the Second World War. The move was made by road and was successfully completed on the 6th November 2020.
