2017 Events & Airshows

Compared to earlier years, there weren’t a lot of events in Belgium in 2017.  Beside the Spotters day in Kleine-Brogel on September 9th there wasn’t any major organization by the Belgian Air Component this year. The same rule was applied by the Royal Dutch Air Force for that matter.

Anyway, there’s hope for next year, the “Belgian Air Force Days” are announced for 8th & 9th of September 2018.

Fortunately Belgian Spotters can always rely on the yearly “Sanicole Airshow”. One of the best and greatest privately organized airshows in Western Europe.  (

2018 Belgian Air Force Days

Saturday & Sunday September 8th & 9th, 2018

No Sanicole Airshow this year, so they joined forces with the Belgian Air force instead. The result was more than OK. One of the eyecatchers was the Ukranian Sukhoi SU-27 "Flanker" and an Italian  JSF  F-35 landed on Belgian soil for the very first time.

Sanicole Sunset Airshow

Friday September 8th, 2017

Already the 4th edition of this nice event. The good weather wasn't at the rendezvous this year so you won't find any pictures of the Italian Frecci Tricolori, to bad…


Kleine brogel - Belgian Air Force Base

2017 Spotters Day

Saturday September 9th, 2017

Sanicole airfield is a private owned aeroclub with a runway who is far too small for the attended jets and teams to land and take off. So every year the participants  are stationed on the military air base of Kleine-Brogel at some 15 km away. This year a Spotters day was organized on the base.
