The open day turned out to be a local event. When we arrived at the gate, a large group of people was waiting to enter the base premises.
Luckily we got in with the first group and I was able to photograph the static free from background clutter. A small but interesting static was made up of both
preserved and operational types, including a flight line of eleven F-16s. In the afternoon several of them went airborne for some
flying activity at the open day. Remarkable that nothing on the internet was published prior to this show. However, being the only non Portuguese, had some advantages.
All military personnel was friendly and one even took some pictures for me from positions that were off limits for civilians.
