Belgian F-16 Demo Team 2018 schedule

Post by Adam » Tue May 15, 2018 5:30 pm

Rumours of a US visit have, sadly, not come to anything. Otherwise, it's a typically varied and commendable schedule. Usual caveat with the schedules I post - private and non-aviation events are not included.

Jun 10: Cosford Airshow, RAF Cosford, England
Jun 14: Leeuwarden, The Netherlands
Jun 16-17: Finnish Air Force 100th Anniversary Airshow, Tikkakoski, Finland
Jun 23-24: Florennes Air Base Open Door, Belgium
Jul 7: Yeovilton Air Day, RNAS Yeovilton, England
Jul 13-15: Royal International Air Tattoo, RAF Fairford, England
Jul 21: North Sea Air Festival, Knokke-Heist, Belgium
Jul 28: Festival Aéreo Internacional Torre del Mar, Vérez-Málaga, Spain
Aug 25-26: Radom Airshow: Polish Air Force 100th Anniversary, Radom, Poland
Sep 2: Meeting Aérien Cambrai - 14-18 Le temps des As, Cambrai-Niergnies, France
Sep 8-9: Belgian Air Force Days, Kleine Brogel, Belgium
Sep 15-16: NATO Days and Czech Air Force Days, Ostrava, Czech Republic
Sep 22-23: Athens Flying Week, Tanagra, Greece
Oct 13-14: Free Flight World Masters, Sainte Maxime, France

Last year there was a mid-season schedule update to fill in some of the gaps with smaller events, and I wouldn't be surprised if the same happens this year as there are no events scheduled for the first three weeks of August.

This is a really nice touch. To celebtate the 40th and final year of the Alpha Jet in Belgian service, and the centenary of 11 Squadron, the Belgian Air Force have painted up one of 11 Sqn's Alpha Jets in a scheme resembling the Dark Falcon. The "Dark Bat" scheme is inspired by its F-16 cousin, but features a bat on the tail rather than a falcon. The two aircraft will fly together on several occasions, but there are currently no details of when this might occur.

Another awesome scheme! Can't wait to see photos of the two together
