ZJ923 acted the other way around: flying in the morning and static in the afternoon. Hornets HN-415 and HN-441 seemed to fly an operational sortie.

The static display was placed on the taxiway and the old secondary runway. Although the program showed that the flying display was limited to the afternoon, part of it was also performed in the morning. This was probably the rehearsal for the official display in the afternoon. The weather started okay, but became worse during the day. The afternoon was pretty dark with a few drops of rain. Around 16.30 hrs the open day was ended, but you could still hang around for another hour to take the last pictures of the day.
