On May 16th, the Belgian Air Force presented their demonstration teams for the upcoming Airshow season. Three teams were showcased at the Beauvechain Air Base, the “Red Devils”, “A-109 Display Team” and the “F-16 Solo Display Team”. The Teams are the visual representation of the Belgian Air Force to the Belgian people and the other European countries they visit. Hereby showing the great Teamwork and professionalism at many Airshows around Europe.

In 2017 the Belgian Red Devils celebrate their 60th anniversary. Today the team flies four Marchetti trainer aircraft painted in the same red colors with the Belgian tricolor on the tail and bottom side of the wings, as the famous Fouga Magisters used to. The team flies a series of four-ship formation aerobatics, and some solo aerobatics showcasing the maneuverability of the Marchetti.

The A-109 Display Team recently received a new paintjob sporting a Wolf on both sides of the aircraft, the mascot of the 1 Wing. The Team performs a very dynamic demonstration which is enhanced by the use of flares. In 2017 the Team celebrates the 25th anniversary of the A-109 in use by the Belgian Defense.

The F-16 Solo Display Team has always been a highlight at European Airshows, and this tradition is kept on. For the third and last season display pilot Cdt. Tom “Gizmo” De Moortel represents the Belgian Air Force all over Europe in the special colored F-16 called “blizzard”.

We would like to thank the BAF IPR team, the BAF Demonstration Teams and the BAF personnel for the organization of these unique opportunities. Wishing all teams a fantastic and safe Airshow season!
