Heightened security measures were in place for entering the base, but fortunately with enough checkpoints to limit the wait. There was no airshow, only a static display with some interesting visitors.

Highlights included a Swedish AF S100 (awacs), two Hungarian JAS-39 Gripens. Greek C-27 and two A-7’s. Also a Polish Fitter was present. Besides the anniversary E-3 from the NATO with it’s stunning color schema, England send there Sentry and France there E-3F.

Nice element of the open house was the Nations Corner. All NATO partners, 16 in all, presented there nations traditional food and beverages. Eat and drink till you drop!
