  • August 16, 1936 - Aviation Festival. Muiznieks and Celmins tore the undercarriage off while landing Aizsargu KOD-1 #11 at Bauska.
  • September 27, 1936 - the fifth waypoint in the first "Flight Around Latvia" competition.
  • September 26, 1937 - waypoint of the second "Flight Around Latvia" competition.
  • August 19, 1938 - Aviation Festival
  • October 1, 1938 - the eighth waypoint in the "Flight Around Latvia" competition. The aircraft did not land, but dropped markers at the aerodrome, which had such clear approach/sightlines that they hit the target almost flawlessly.
