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.

However, due to the uncertainty surrounding the future of the Cold War Jets Collection, XX900’s continued presence at Bruntingthorpe is not conducive to her being maintained in an operational state. With the complete agreement of her owner Mr David Walton we have decided to take up the kind offer of Mr Paul Shelton, Engineering Director of Tatenhill Aviation, to relocate to Tatenhill Airfield in Staffordshire so that she may continue to run her engines at full power and stretch her legs on a new home runway.

So now we are asking for your help to make this happen....
