A small 'static only' limited Open Day was held on the main dispersal ramp at the station. Due to inclement weather, there was no flying display. The USAF were well represented with B-52H, KC-135E/R, F-16's and a C-135. The RAAF was represented by F/A-18's, DHC-4, C-130H amongst rotary examples such as the UH-1 Iriquois, Chinook and Sea King.
