41st Sanicole Airshow kicks off with stunning Sunset Program


On Friday 13th, Sanicole kicked off its 41st edition with a stunning Sunset line up.

Established in 1977, the award-winning International Sanicole Airshow plans and operates the exciting, family-friendly annual event designed to promote aviation in all its different dimensions. ISA honours our rich aerial heritage while using the power and magic of flight to inspire young people.

This year, the grand public can enjoy a wider area with upgraded parking facilities and food options. There is a children play area along with climbing wall.

You can still take part in this aviation rich weekend with the only ‘Belgian Airshow’, either by joining on Saturday or on Sunday.

Today is the ‘Spotters day’ at the Kleine Brogel AFB. Further information is available here.

On Sunday, Sanicole takes over and goes for the extra mile with another stunning line up. Program can be found here.

No doubt, a major event in Belgium for the joy of Aviation geeks and the Aviation lovers. Not to be missed.
