Saturday 24th March 2012, The Buccaneer Association held their first open day at Bruntingthorpe Airfield in Leicestershire for 2012. The event was well attended by Ex Buccaneer air and ground crews as well as many aircraft enthusiasts. The star attraction was Buccaneer S2B repainted as she would have been when in service with the RAF. XW544 made her entrance from out of the mist along Bruntingthorpe's vast runway to the joy of the waiting enthusiasts. Later the group's pair of aircraft were on show and carried out individual runs. Later in the afternoon all four of Bruntingthorpe’s resident Buccaneers were lined up for a photo shoot and later as dusk approached the three taxiable aircraft carried out a streamed fast run.
