EHGR 05-05-2021 AAC choppers?

Post by patrick dirksen »

Hi all,

Heard a rumour a bunch of Army Air Corps helicopters might be visiting Gilze-Rijen this day for a tank stop (although I also heard this might have been cancelled again). Since I can't find any info on this on the www, I thought I'd post it here. Hopefully this will lead to a sharing of available information (which seems to happen less and less, despite the wonders of internet...).

Any additional info (inclusing positive or negative confirmation) would be welcome, and don't shoot the.....
Cheers,

As for now Gilze-Rijen is closed this day. So most probably no AAC choppers at this date at EHGR.

Does anyone know if Gilze is open on other days that week (because of the May holiday)?

-> still a lot of information is shared, but please take in mind that not all information available is allowed to be shared on open sources like internet. And in 2021, more mediums than the open internet exist to share information, as you are probably well aware :-)

Hi Antilliaan,

Thanks for the reminder, and of course I am aware not all info is available for sharing. I totally respect that!

But I really do see a tendancy to share less and less info on expectations, not via this forum nor via the 'good old fashioned' mailing lists. And yes, I presume Facebook is used more nowadays, however I still stay away from that. And regarding Whatsapp groups, these are very private of course, making it more a matter of 'knowing the right person' or belonging to the 'in-crowd'.

Either way, I am glad with all info that IS shared, and try to do my part as well (although in my case that's mostly afterwards in the shape of logs with as much additional information as I can give).
Cheers,

Wellicht totaal niet relevant, maar momenteel zijn er 2x 2 Wildcat's onderweg vanuit Engeland naar het vaste land, eerste boven het Kanaal naar Calais , AAC107 en AAC109. Zijn deze wellicht onderweg naar Gilze?

At 09:30Z on the 11th, there's a pir of Army Apaches about 20 miles west of Gilze.

From ADS-B they are,

ZJ195 AAC446
ZJ223 AAC443

These may well be inbound to Gilze for fuel.

Edit,

Eindhoven appears to be their destination.

Thing is, they're expected at Eindhoven with another pair on the way as well. Fuel trucks are already standing by for them there :wink:
