Sanicole Airshow 2022 Review

PZL W-3 Sokol

The US Air Force F-35 demo and the Belgian Air Force F-16 demo were the highlights of the Sanicole Airshow weekend for me. But there was so much more to see. So here is the rest of my photos from that weekend.

The Swiss Hornet demonstration is always nice to see. And it was quite spectacular this year because there was so much humidity in the air. At one point captain Yannick ‘Fönsi’ Zanata was almost able to hide his F/A-18 in its own vapor cloud.

It was also nice to see Redbull’s shiny North American B-25 Mitchell. I had never seen that bird before. And not to forget: after a long time our friends of the Turkish Air Force paid Sanicole a visit again with the demonstration team The Turkish Stars.

There were quite a few helicopters there. Both flying and in the static display. The Royal Dutch Air Force sent an Apache helicopter. And there was even a Bell UH-1 “Huey” in the static display. I found that really cool.

The truth to be told: I shot some of these photos at Kleine-Brogel Airbase during the spottersday, the day before the actual Sanicole airshow.
