Sanicole Airshow Presents the Belgian Air Force
You can always count on a strong presence of the Belgian Air Force at Sanicole airshow. The show is heavily and brilliantly supported by the men and women of Kleine-Brogel airbase. And pretty much every squadron of the BAF sent a representative to the show.
There is the star of the Belgian Air Force: our F-16 Solo Display. Vrieske and his Dream Viper got plenty of attention in a previous blog post.
But there were so much more demonstrations of the Belgian Air Force. Starting with the newest addition: the Airbus A400M Atlas of the 15th Wing Air Transport.
The home team has something to add to the airshow too. KeeBee’s 31SQN displayed their Thunder Tigers. And they few escort for the Ait Belgium Airbus A330 on one of its passes.
The 40th squadron, still based at Koksijde airbase, displayed the SAR capabilities of their NH-90FN. 40SQN is probably the most famous squadron of the Belgian Air Force. Back in the days when they still flew on Seaking they were the star of the hit TV-series Windkracht 10.
They were not the only helicopter demonstration team though. The team of Razzle Blades, flying out of Beauvechain, demonstrated the Augusta A-109.
And they last but to least: the Red Devils. Part of the 1st Wing out of Beauvechain and currently, flying the SIA Marchetti SF260, the Red Devils have been my favorite air force demonstration team since the 1970’s.
