In the late part of the evening an Antonov 124 landed at airbase Gilze and Rijen. The goal? To collect two Appache helicopters for the mission of the Dutch fighting forces in Mali, Africa. The Antonov isn't the biggest plain in the world but it's still an impressive thing to see this "giant of the air" standing on the tarmac.

It was working with a certain speed. It was getting darker and darker with the minute. Time to hurry up. After we finaly arived near the airplane we just had enough time to make a photo with the setting sun in the back. A few minutes later it was gone and it got pretty dark.
