Notes:

A Trim Indicator provides a simple visual indication of nose or tail heaviness of an airplane in flight. If the bar is horizontal and unbroken then the aircraft is correctly trimmed. The Indicator Part Number and date within the Serial Number would suggest that this little device could have been fitted to a Buccaneer.
