In 2002 Gilze-Rijen was regularly visited because some nice aircraft past by. The year began with a visit on February 13, when there was a Belgian Fouga Magister present at Gilze-Rijen. This type aircraft is not very often seen at Gilze-Rijen and therefore it was an interesting visitor. Two days later, there were no more than two F-16s of the no 312 Squadron from Volkel airbase present at Gilze-Rijen. On June 24, there was a French TBM700 on the platform which is quite special. Even more special is the arrival of an American C-12 on June 27, 2002. This aircraft is rarely seen at Gilze-Rijen and therefore it was a very nice visitor. Finally, there were daily PC-7s seen during training flights.
