About us

Our 2018 Spring Thunder Days begin with a celebration of the first flight of the Blackburn Buccaneer, just a few miles away from the Museum at Brough. The 30th of April 1958 was the first flight of the Buccaneer which went on to serve in both the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.

The Museum is incredibly fortunate to have no less than three Buccaneers, with the rare prototype XN974 maintained in full ground running order. All three of our Buccaneers will be on full display with a whole array of their capabilities for visitors to learn more about this versatile aircraft.
