The year on Gilze-Rijen started with the visit of some Soesterberg Chinooks. Furthermore, mainly a lot of local traffic would be captured at Gilze-Rijen. The year 2000 would be the last year where the Royal Netherlands Air Force would use the leased AH-64A Apache helicopters. The twelve helicopters are leased from the United States Army and must return back to the United States in the Spring of 2001. One of the Apaches had special markings with the text "301 Goes Delta". Furthermore Gilze-Rijen was visited by a Swiss Super Puma which made a night stop at the airbase. The year at Gilze-Rijen was ended with a visit of a Dutch Fokker F-60UTA-N from Eindhoven Air Base.
