Koksijde Airshow (Belgium), July 7th, 2011
Belgium celebrated the 65th anniversary of its air force with an impressive airshow at Koksijde Air Base on 6 and 7 July 2011. Koksijde is the home of 40 squadron Heli, the Sea King equipped SAR unit; that’s probably the reason why on the static show the rotors were in the majority and that only some 6 fighter aircraft were present (plus a lot of warbirds by the way; these are presented in our warbirds album).
The airshow included performances of the Thunderbirds, Red Arrows, Turkish Stars, Patrouille de France, Patrouille de Suisse and from the Air Force of Saoudi Arabia the Saoudi Hawks! Frank visited the show on Thursday 7 July.
