I heard this weekend (from people who visited the warehouse in Vlissingen) that it will take till 6th of december before the warehouse is empty and all choppers are gone to Woensdrecht. And AFTER THAT the heli’s from Gilze-Rijen are welcome. I hope it’s not true

The helo's from Fort Hood which are in Vlissingen will be leaving Vlissingen port before 6 December
At least that was what was told.
At the moment some flights already left Vlissingen port, and already landed At Woensdrecht airbase

I hope that IS true. That would gives us the rest of the week to visit Gilze for all the choppers there!

The original schedule is that the outbound group would leave Gilze-Rijen starting Monday 6 December. But these things can change.

Indeed that is the plan but if everything is gone earlier in Vlissingen MAYBE they will depart Gilze earlier than Monday 6 December.

Apparently already 19 (out of 39) choppers have already moved from Vlissingen to Woensdrecht this morning. If they keep up this pace, Vlissingen will be empty tomorrow.... :shock:

They have 900 equipment items (vehicles etc.) to move, that might take a couple of days..
