2016 Gilze-Rijen AB home of the 301 sq 'Redskin' Apaches

Updated: Jan 28, 2018

On 31 October Ludo Mennes made a visit to Gilze-Rijen AB to catch some Apaches in action.

With a sunny day forecasted, the position near the head of runway 28 at the Burgemeester Ballingsweg is perfect for taxishots.

The Apache hangars are situated close to the fence and the hope was to catch an Apache for a head-on shot, however this depends on which taxitrack the helo's use departing their platform to the runway.

If they use the Kilo taxi-track they will taxi away, if they use the Lima track they will taxi towards the photographer.

Luckily all flying Apaches decided to use the Lima taxi-track which resulted in some interesting shots!
