Thursday October 10, 2019 On my fourth and the only sunny day of a very quiet week at GLV-5 I feel very lucky to have witnessed some dramatic flying by the friendly aircrew of AH-64 Apache.

Wednesday October 9, 2019 Tuesday was a blank but today was saved by a mid-afternoon Chinook dropping in to a remote confined area twice which was a challenge to get to in time. Dull with light rain over most of the day.

The AS532U2 Cougars from 300 squadron were night flying throughout the week. Departing Gilze Rijen at around 18:30 a Cougar each evening appeared to operate around GLV-5 from after 19:00 when it was quite dark. Each morning tell tale Chinook 'prints' were found in the sand.
