One of the most famous and longest lasting Airshows in Europe is the Sanicole Airshow in Belgium. It was with great pleasure we participated this great show, both with the Skyvan and the Bronco.

The Skyvan was operated from Zwartberg Airfield as an aerial platform for some of the best photographers from around the world, participating the Air-to-Air Academy organized by the Aviation Photocrew. It was a great pleasure to work with such great cooperation between photographers, ATC, the Sanicole Airshow organization and the many aircrew during the photoshoots.

On Friday evening we all enjoyed a wonderful Sunset airshow at the Sanicole Airfield. The weather gods gave us a very nice sunset sky, resulting in great light, ideal for photography.

On Saturday the Bronco flew over to the nearby Kleine-Brogel Air Base, where the Spottersday was organized. The Skyvan also made a quick stop at the spottersday and was parked next to the iconic Breitling Super Constellation. In the late afternoon the Bronco was ferried to Sanicole to join the static display.

On Sunday we got to see the show of numerous flying displays, such as the Pioneer team, Brendan O-Brien’s Flying Circus, the Victors, the Belgian F16 Demo and many others. A demo of the Sea King and successor NH-90 was enjoyed by the large crowd. One of the highlights was Rex Pemperton who jumped out of our Skyvan in his wingsuit with his wife Melissa rolling around him in her Edge 540 acro aircraft. Another ‘picture perfect’ moment was the fly-by of the Super Constellation together with the Patrouille Suisse. The show ended with a beautiful demo of Frecce Tricolori, we especially appreciated that the commentator learned some Dutch words.

The day ended with a splendid party to celebrate the end of the show.

We would like to thank the organization for having us on the biggest airshow of Belgium! Hopefully we see you again next year!
