This is the story of The Beginning of the SAAF Buccaneers S Mk50 and their service in 24 Squadron.

Lt Gen Mike Muller – former 24 Sqn Buccaneer Pilot and retired Chief of The Air Force who was involved with the Buccaneer project from the start: “The first time I laid eyes on the Buccaneer, was after dark in a small WW II type hangar at the Blackburn airfield, Holme – on -Spalding Moor near Brough. That already emphasised the size of the Buccaneer, but I will never forget the magic of that first impression in the somewhat eerie fluorescent illumination.”

This is the beginning of the story of the Buccaneer S Mk50 in service with 24 Squadron from 1965 to 1991. It forms part of a 4-series set of books spanning from the initial procurement requirements, until the closing of the Squadron and retiring of the SAAF Buccaneers. Each book covering a specific era and life of both the Squadron and the Buccaneers.
