At this moment (10:00 GMT+1) a small air show has started to celebrate the re-newed runways and air base lightning of Royal Netherlands Air Force (Koninklijke Luchtmacht) base Gilze-Rijen. The show is opened by an F-16 and will be followed by a flyby of helicopters and other aircraft. The field received the latest surface treatment, the approaching lights are replaced by Sequence Flashing Lights (SFL), the socalled Running Rabbits, and the runway and platform lights have now LED lightning. The former jet base is transformed to "Defence Helicopter Commando", the main helicopter base of the Netherlands: serving KLu's Chinooks, Cougars and Apaches. The Gilze-Rijen base stays open for heavy transport aircraft and is an operational base which means that aircraft and fighters of NATO partners can use the base.
