Two in One

Gilze is joined with the neighbouring village of Rijen. Together they form Gilze-Rijen, well-known by the Royal Netherlands Airforce base.

I went to the airbase for the 2002 Airshow.

Pros and Cons

    Great firepower and aerobatics you've captured here!!! Loved the Spitfire and Fighting Falcon picture too!!! And the timing of the Red Arrows is surely nothing less than perfect!!!
