https://www.sanicole.com/en/turkish-sta ... r-sanicolehe most famous ambassadors of the Turkish air force will show a perfect harmony of skill, speed and discipline in the sky over Sanicole this year, in keeping with their motto, the Turkish Stars / Türk Yildizlari.
The team is world-famus for its energetic display with seven NF-5 Freedom fighters. Unlike most European teams, they fly fighters instead of trainers, making them perhaps the fastest and noisiest airforce display team in Europe. Their gorgeous wite, red and silver paintscheme makes them stand out even more, and their enthusiastic narrator will certainly also win your heart during their breathtaking show.
The team were established in 1992 and have a rich history and strong reputation in Europe and Asia. The team members are all experienced frontline pilots who are now based at Konya in southern Turkey. They combine tight formations with exciting solos and spectacular crosses.
It’s been over 10 years since the team visited Belgium so don’t miss this rare opportunity to see the Turkish Stars in action again. Mark 10 & 11 September 2022 in your calendar and cheer them on at the International Sanicole Airshow!

https://www.sanicole.com/en/belgian-air-force-f-16-2/The Belgian Air Force sends its newest top ambassador to our airshow. From this year on, a ‘local’ will provide this spectacular demo. Captain-Aviator Steven De Vries, better known as Vrieske, will use his rich experience to the max. And that experience is truly unique: after all, Vrieske is one of the few pilots in the world with more than 5000 flying hours on the F-16 Fighting Falcon, still the showpiece of the Belgian Air Force.
Vrieske started his career in the Air Force in 1990 and earned his wings in 1992. First he was part of the 23rd Squadron at Kleine-Brogel. After the disbanding of that squadron, he transferred to 31st Tiger Squadron. Since 2005 (?) he was the leader of the Thundertigers, the quartet from 31st squadron that was presented tactical maneuvers exclusively at Sanicole and Kleine-Brogel, something Vrieske has extensive experience in thanks to his years of experience during combat operations abroad.
During his solo demonstration, Vrieske will show the enormous power of the F-16, but where this demo differs greatly from others, is in the amount of manoeuvers with negative G-forces, something that fighter aircraft like the F-16 don’t usually perform in abundance.
Don’t miss this spectacle and join us at the International Sanicole Airshow on 10 & 11 September!

Here you go, the absolute headliner of the 43rd International Sanicole Airshow: the F-35 Lightning II solo display team of the US Air Force. This demo team gets the ‘next generation’ format of the International Sanicole Airshow weekend going with the latest in fighter aircraft technology and the future of the Belgian air force.
It will be the first time the US Air Force F-35 demo team is performing on the European Mainland and it will be the team’s only perfomance outside North-America this year!
Flying this exceptional fifth generation fighter will be major Kristin ‘Beo’ Wolfe of the 388th Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base. The F-35 is not only extremely manoeuvrable but can also approach its targets undetected thanks to its advanced stealth capabilities. Coupled with the latest avionics and sensor equipment, this remarkable aircraft will no doubt stun you and give you a glimpse of the capabilities that will soon also be available to the Belgian military.
The USAF F-35 solo display team will also help us celebrate the 75th anniversary of the United States Air Force, longtime friends and partners of the International Sanicole Airshow. More than ever before Sanicole will be honoring the past and celebrate the future.
