Never a pilot or a serviceman but brought up as a services (FAA) brat through the 70s, where the Buccaneer was treated with a reverence and affection not shared by any of its peers.
Like so many, my AEA Dad converted from fixed wing to rotary (with the demise of our big carriers) and many years later, on visiting the FAA Museum Yeovilton, witnessed him get quite emotional in front of the Buccaneer followed by his thrilling (typically humorous) accounts of exploits involving this and other aircraft of its era.
My childhood was an exciting time living in close proximity of these wonderful machines and still feel the hairs rise on the back of my neck when listening to the marvellous accounts from these lucky men in their awe inspiring flying machines!
My only negative comment, the narration could be a little mundane and I welcomed the break when the USAF accounts were performed in a different accent, nevertheless a good listen.
