Runway 28; Gilze-Rijen, 2006

Gilze-Rijen Air Base in 2006; Text and Photograph's by Alex van Noye

I went only one time to the head of the runway 28 at Gilze-Rijen in the year 2006. I had the chance to capture the first C-17 on photo which visited Gilze-Rijen. The C-17 came in to exchange the Apaches of the no 301 Squadron. There are currently six Dutch Apaches at the Dutch detachment in Afgha- nistan. The helicopters are exchanged after a few months because they are in need of servicing. This C-17 brought two of them back to Gilze-Rijen. Also two other helicopters were prepared to go to Afghanistan. I managed to capture a few photos of the C-17 during its departure at the head of the runway 28. The weather during the departure was gray and dull.
