Taipei, July 23 (CNA) Hualien Air Base will be open to the public on the second Sunday in August to demonstrate the capability of Taiwan's air assets and to foster relations between civilians and the military, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) said Tuesday.

The air base, home to the multirole F-16 Fighting Falcon, will hold its open day events from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 10, the MND said in a press release.

The open day will be held in celebration of the 82nd anniversary of the establishment of the Air Force on Aug. 14, 1937 and also to display its capability and build relations with the public, the ministry said.
