Kleine Brogel (Sanicole) spottersday 2021
 
Latest update: July 2021
 
Sanicole air show is annually organized in September. On Friday at the end of the day their sunset air show is held with a limited number of participants flying their demo and followed on the Sunday by all the full flying display.

Kleine Brogel Air Base home to the Belgian Air Component 10 Tactical Wing supports the Sanicole organizations and hosts fighter and transport aircraft who aren't able to land and take off from the grass runway at Hechtel. The base also organizes the spotter's day which provides access to the base on Saturday. Aircraft flying from Kleine Brogel are parked on the parallel runway or on the ramp in front of the maintenance hangar.

The 2021 edition of Sanicole has the Saturday added as an additional show day. Caused by COVID-19 the additonal day provides the same number of spectators to visit the air show as during previous years. Then the Saturday was used by sole and display teams to rehearse their show at Hechtel.
