Sanicole Airshow news update

The Swiss air force F-18 solo display team of the 11 Tiger squadron and the Patrouille Suisse team from Switzerland were confirmed by the official webpage of the airshow. Furthermore, the Hungarian Defence Forces JAS 39 Demo solo display will also attend. The famous Mi-24 HIND from the Czech Republic will also participate and the organisers also informed the public with the following:

There is a long-standing, strong tie between the tiger community and the Sanicole Airshow. Both on a local level with the 31 squadron based at Kleine-Brogel and internationally with the Nato Tiger Association. It is therefore no surprise that the 70th anniversary of this proud tiger unit and the 60th anniversary of the Association are two central themes in this year’s airshow.

September will therefore be an incredible Tiger celebration around the “XTM”, a special XT-roar-dinary Tigermeet, to celebrate these anniversaries. The 31 squadron, one of the founding members of the NATO tiger association, will be hosting this special event at Kleine-Brogel Air Force Base to gather these NATO units that have a tiger or large cat in their emblem. All these units meet annually to exchange experiences and best-practices during the course of a joint military exercise.
