MORNING Fast Run along the Runway by a Buccaneer S.2. (£10) :

From our airside enclosure, guests will have the exclusive opportunity to experience the aircraft turning on, performing high power engine runs, and hydraulics demonstrations of the wings and air brake. The airside enclosure also allows for excellent views of the runway, where the aircraft will perform its fast run! This is the best location on the airfield to get photos of the aircraft performing fast-taxi runs and provides excellent photo opportunities during high-power engine runs!

AFTERNOON Anti-Det Engine and Systems run by a Buccaneer S.2. (£25):

Located on the TBAG maintenance pan, guests will have the exclusive opportunity to get close to and walk around the aircraft, with the photo opportunities, and the chance to ask the TBAG crew questions whilst they undertake maintenance tasks and prepare the aircraft for its run. As part of the anti-det run, guests will be up close to the aircraft during the high-power engine runs, and demonstrations of the hydraulics systems (wings unfolding, airbrakes, and arrestor hook deploy, control surfaces activated, and bomb bay rotated). After the run, the Buccaneer will shut down and there will be the opportunity to see the ground crew perform after 'flight' checks.


As this is a working airport, guests will be issued with a briefing in advance of and upon arrival. The aircraft are loud - please bring ear defenders. If possible, please bring hi-viz clothing. Both will be provided by TBAG if necessary.

Refunds available on a case-by-case basis - tickets are able to be transferred to a new date if necessary.
