No, you can’t fly your final approach lower than this.
Gilze Rijen is one of those famous airports where planes flew very low final approaches.
After the U.S. F-4E Phantom about to touch down on spotters heads in June 1984, here’s another ultra low final approach at Gilze-Rijen, this time by a Royal Netherlands Air Force NF-5A.
Taken in Winter 1987 by Jan Klijs, the photo depicts a Dutch Tiger flying with the 316 Sqn, about to land at Gilze Rijen.
The aircraft touched down short of runway 28 but the fence was low and the aircraft wasn’t damaged too much.
Just a close call for both the pilot and anyone in the vicinity.
