The Royal Netherlands Air Force Apache.
Operated by 301 Squadron of the Defence Helicopter Command which is stationed at Gilze-Rijen Air Base.
The Hawk design on Q-17 can be removed quickly if deployment to operational missions is required.
Quoted from their website –
“The Apache Solo Display team performs its shows this year at national and international air displays to demonstrate what the RNLAF stands for: AIRPOWER! "

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.
