75th anniversary Belgian Air Force

The Belgian air force, celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, is a strong partner of the International Sanicole Airshow and they are once again sending their flagship displays to us.

Since many years, the dynamic F-16 Solo Display is the main highly capable combat aircraft of the Belgian Air Force. Since 2018, this show-stopping display is flown by Captain Stefan “Vador” Darte.

Vador has Florennes as his home base for all operations. In addition to his regular operational duties, he also travels across Europe to stun the audience with his rip-roaring routine showing the power of the F-16 and the incredible agility of the aircraft, combined with some special effects to make sure his display is a real highlight of the day. When we get closer to the Sanicole Airshow it will become clear whether Vador will present this special livery F-16 or the Dark Falcon. Stay tuned for more news.
