Also this year Gilze-Rijen Air Base was visited again for numerous times. The year at Gilze-Rijen started with a visit of a NATO C-17 Globemaster III from Papa Air Base in Hungary. This C-17 delivered several helicopters of the DHC for an exchange for the Dutch deployment in Mali. No less than four Belgian Air Force Alpha-jets came in at Gilze-Rijen for a full stop at the end of June. It was a long time ago that these aircraft had visited Gilze-Rijen Air Base. All the aircraft made a number of touch and go’s before they came in for a full stop. The year ended in December with a visit of two British Sea-Kings which were in the Netherlands to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Marines.
