From Monday evening 24 until Wednesday morning August 26, 2020 the grass around the landing site of Eindhoven Air Base will be mowed. The work will take place between 19.00 and 6.00 hours. Afterwards, the runway system will be cleaned.
In the evening hours, the grass will be mowed on parts of the site where air traffic is not hindered by the mowing. After the closure of the airport, mowing will take place around the taxi and landing runway. Keeping the grass short prevents signs and markings around the runway system from becoming less visible. Mowing also makes the landing area less attractive to birds. For this reason, the mowed grass is cleaned up immediately. The runway lighting of the airport is illuminated during the mowing operations.
