Hello,
Yesterday I went to the Sanicole Airshow in Hechtel, Belgium.
It was a great sunny day but very hard to take a descent picture, as the burning sun was right in front of the public and made every plane look like a silhouette...

Here are a few pictures to give you an idea,
Feel free to post more pictures if you were there also ; )

The sun was tricky to make a decent photo indeed.
I'll put mine in later in the week, many to sort:tongue-out3:

Sadly no full angel spread but still a worthy end for the evenings show.

If you don’t mind Steven, if so let me know and I’ll move them to a separate tread.

Love the night shots, brilliant, never seen a airshow at night now on the list to do, I was lucky to see four Ospreys at Duxford, strange aircraft indeed very sci-fi looking.
Thank you for posting the pictures Fernando :thumb2:

Great show location and organisation, even there were 40,000+ visitors the parking and shuttlebuses were good to reach.
Highly recommended event:thumb2:.

Lucky man for seeing four of them at once, should make an interesting sound on a video:hungry:.
Saw one CV-22 up close and the inside too at the BAF open days.

Next years edition of Sanicole is also with a Sunset airshow on Friday, spottersday at Saturday and Sunday a full airshow too.
Who knows what they'll manage to book?
