Open day at Ost colliery on May 13th 2001 !
The weather was wonderful, the organizers had prepared lots of different attractions for entertainment, action and other different aspects and crowds of visitors came to the colliery's area. Lots of things and actions could be seen: Presentations of the underground fire brigade, an exhibition of machines used underground, the visitors could go underground themselves, the area could be seen from the sky during flights with a helicopter and entertainment for the children was offered, as well. I want to acknowledge what the organizers did by showing some impressions of this wonderful day.
