Celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Belgian air force, Sanicole will present two helicopters in the flying display that helped shape the history of the airforce: The airforce's first helicopter, the Bristol Sycamore presented by the Flying Bulls, and the stunning razzle-blade schemed A-109. :clap:

We've added quite a few display items over the past weeks.
From Belgium, there's a T-6 display by Stijn De Jaeghere, brand-new to the airshow scene. The Royal Navy is contributing its Wildcat Demo team to the show, while the Polish and Hellenic air forces are both sending their F-16 solo displays to Sanicole. The Danish airforce will participate with their Baby Blue Team flying 5 T-17 Supporters and finally, the Italian air force will send three types that will make their Sanicole-debut: the T-346 Master, EF-2000 Typhoon and C-27 Spartan. :clap:

Tickets are available from the website. A few options are already sold out and the others are also going well so best not to leave it to the last minute.

I am thinking of driving over to the Tiger meet at KB and Sanicole via Calais of course but I have heard France is an amber list country? Does that mean you Quarantine at home when you return? I guess all Schenegan countries are on the same list?

I am double jabbed so under the new rules I don't quarantine but get a PCR test ? It all very confusing to me.

Guidelines are fully available on gov.uk website. On return from France you would have to quarantine for 10 days and have two PCR tests.

Sadly won't be going this year. Hopefully next time. Received this today
Dear Insider,

We insist on keeping you informed about the setup of our event in these special times and the restrictions that will be applicable. As a result of the decisions taken by our federal government on July 19th, the following measures will apply. We also want to emphasize again that these measures can still change until shortly before the event and therefore recommend to continue to inform yourself and keep a sharp look on our newsletters and website until just before our event.

The International Sanicole Airshow prides itself in keeping safety and quality at the forefront. We will always ensure our visitors can have a prime experience in an optimal situation. This is why we have opted as organizers to go down a safe path for the setup of our 2021 event, which will raise the comfort and experience levels of our visitors.

That is why everyone who will visit our airshow at the age of 12 years or older will have to have a “Covid Safe Ticket”. This means that you have either been fully vaccinated for two weeks, or have passed a negative PCR test not older than 48 hours, or have a COVID-19 cure certificate. This “Covid Safe Ticket” is available to residents of the EU, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Each visitor will be checked for this on arrival at the car park in combination with his or her proof of identity to validate the authenticity of the "Covid Safe Ticket".

In addition visitors travelling to Belgium from abroad should respect the conditions to enter our country as published by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the moment of our show and these can be different that the ones applicable to the Covid Safe Ticket.

On the showground we will stick to our concept of spreading our visitors eqaully over 5 sectors of 1.500 visitors each. Wearing a mouth mask is not mandatory within these sectors. Outside the sectors, we will at this moment maintain to the mouth mask obligation. This applies to any movement along the pedestrian boulevard and the rest of the site.

 

Sincerely,


Geoffrey Buekenberghs
Airshow Director
International Sanicole Airshow

As far as I can see, fully vaccinated on return from France is no help and you need to follow the "not fully vaccinated" process. Again it is all on the gov.uk website. I think you also need a form to enter Belgium (so presumably they will stop you at the border?). Belgium is also amber listed but seems less stringent on return. However since you will be going via France then the rules for there will take priority.

NHS test kits are not sufficient so you need to pay for them plus the quarantine. Seems a lot of hassle for a few aircraft but have fun if you decide to go. Just make sure everything is in order or you could face a £500 fine.

It does seem complicated but I am sure Eurotunnel or the ferry operator would be able to help.

You need to remember that France was put on what is being called the "Amber plus" list; indeed it was very close, so we are told, to being added to the "red list". Not worth all the hassle just for a few numbers.

I thought that if you went via Eurostar to Brussels then they had sections of the train reserved for direct customers hence no need to quarantine on return,of course you would then need to hire a car in Brussels,might be worth seeing if this was ever implemented

Note this is Eurostar not Eurotunnel

Straight from www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/belgiu ... entsGov.uk:-

Travelling to Belgium from the UK
The UK is currently classified as red zone (high risk) on the Belgian Government’s travel colour code system. If you are not a citizen or resident of Belgium or another EU/Schengen country you will only be able to travel to Belgium for a very limited set of reasons, set out on the Belgian Government’s website (under the Transport and International section question: ‘I am not a national of the EU nor of a country that is part of the Schengen Area, and my primary residence is in a third country marked as ‘red’ on this list, however it is not a very high-risk country. May I travel to Belgium?’). If you are eligible to travel, you must carry an Essential Travel Certificate. Applications for an Essential Travel Certificate need to be submitted to the Embassy of Belgium in the UK. Please note that the Embassy request applications are submitted five days before departure.

British nationals who are resident in Belgium are permitted to enter but should be prepared to show valid proof of residence.

I would be absolutely gob smacked if going to an airshow is one of the limited reasons for visiting Belgium. So Sanicole is a 100% no go.

I have fingers arms and legs crossed that things open up. I have my flights booked and will likely book accommodation and car hire that I can cancel very soon.
Would be my first time at Sanicole. Still trying to weigh up ticket options. Definitely doing Friday but unsure about spotters on Saturday and Airshow Sunday or show both days and spotters Monday. All 4 days have been earmarked but could alter Monday for example if it was a quiet day or only likely to be appealing for a couple of hours.
Any veterans able to lend some words of wisdom??
