Dutch F-16 and Apache Demo teams trained together ahead of Gilze-Rijen airshow, in the Netherlands. And here’s the view from inside the cockpits!
Here are some interesting shots, once again taken with GoPro cameras aboard Royal Netherlands Air Force F-16 and Apache demo teams.
The Dutch F-16 demo team is based at Leeuwarden Airbase and made of personnel from both the 323 and 322 Squadrons. The team consists of one display pilot, Captain Jeroen “Slick” Dickens, four display coaches, eight technical specialists and a webmaster.
The Apache Solo Display Team 2014 of the 301 ‘Redskins’ Apache Squadron is based at Gilze-Rijen Air Base and represents the only AH-64 Apache demo in the world (Apache demonstrations are normally only performed by Boeing).
Majoor Roland “Wally” Blankenspoor and Kapitein Harm “Kaas” Cazemier are the two pilots of the Dutch Apache demo team 2014. The team includes three display coaches and six technical specialists.
During the practice of the Gilze-Rijen airshow, the two aircraft flew together, and here are the shots taken from inside both cockpits.
