The open days of the Royal Netherlands Army took place in
two different weekends on 2 and 9 June. Almost all helicopters
operated from Soesterberg, except for the Navy Lynx and the
Bo105 of the KLPD. A tragic accident occurred on the 2nd
when a soldier was dragged along with a rope that was
connected to the departing Lynx helicopter. Apparently he was
not disconnected from the rope yet after abseiling from the
helicopter, when the helicopter started to fly away from the
scene. The soldier died in hospital because of his injuries.
Due to bad weather, the Air Mobility demonstration was
cancelled on the 9th.
