The Blackburn Buccaneer was designed to a Royal Navy specification for a two-seat carrier-based low level tactical strike aircraft, and incorporated advanced design features such as area ruling, boundary layer blowing of the flaps and tailplane, rotary bombdoor, etc. The S Mk.2 variant introduced more powerful engines, and an export version of this variant was supplied to the South African Air Force as the S Mk 50.

We offer three titles for the Blackburn Buccaneer, covering all models of the Buccaneer in Royal Navy, RAF and SAAF service. Each title costs US$9.95. Each file has been scanned from the original flight manuals and retains any colour pages.
