During four days the third biannual AeroExpo was held starting with an official opening day followed by two days trade show and the closing day the public day. On the first and last      
day the full flying program was held, the days in between a few aircraft did not participate. This edition was interesting as many new aircraft types for the Air Force like the T-6C,      
C-27J and F-16C/D could be observed at close range. Not a single aircraft used the CNA-xx serial layout anymore. As with the previous edition the static show was used to show      
most an example of most the active types. Unfortunately, on an airbase with many taken from service aircraft around every effort had been made to keep those out of sight for the      
curious. The airshow had the nature of a flypast with more aircraft in the air than on previous editions and with the emphasis on unloading in the air, being fuel (KC-130H), fire      
retardant (C-130MAFFS, CL-415), pesticide (AB205A), cargo (SA330L) or people (SA330L). For photography a position on the field was needed for the action shots, otherwise outside      
the field light conditions were considerably better.
