Buccaneer XV361 was first flown on April 2 1968 and joined 800 NAS Royal Navy on November 28th that same year. Serving with 800 NAS until 1972, this Buccaneer was the final Royal Navy aircraft passed on to the RAF arriving with No. 12 Squadron in July 1983. It was later involved in Operation Pulsator, the flying of combat air patrols in support of the UN operation in Lebanon. In 1994 the aircraft was retired, first flown into RAF Aldergrove then to its new home at the Ulster Aviation Society. Its final flight lasted all of 90 seconds between the two sites.

The Blackburn (Hawker Siddeley) Buccaneer was a British two-seat subsonic strike aircraft that served with the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm and later the Royal Air Force. The Buccaneer made its first flight on April 30, 1958, and entered operational service in July of 1962. The Royal Navy procured the Buccaneer as a strike aircraft capable of operating from aircraft carriers. In addition to conventional munitions for anti-shipping warfare, the aircraft was capable of delivering nuclear weapons and were typically active in the North Sea area during service. Buccaneers were used in the 1991 Gulf War and the South African Border War.
