9 & 10 SEPTEMBER 2023 - Kleine-Brogel Air Base

Belgian Air Force Red Devils

The famous Belgian air force Red Devils have been the air force's most tricoloured flagbearers for many years. With their bright red colour and the Belgian flag beautifully adorning the underside of the wings, they proudly display their origins at home and abroad.

During the Belgian Air Force Days, current team members will also honour their glorious past. After all, the current team on SIAI Marchetti SF-260 has only existed since 2011, when the team was formed after a break of more than 30 years to help celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Air Force. The original team was founded in 1957 and at the time flew on Hawker Hunter fighers at the then air base at Chièvres. After a 2-year silence, the team was re-established at Brustem in 1965, this time on the Fouga Magister trainer and it was during this period, from 1965 to 1977, that the team would enjoy its greatest international successes. However, the oil crisis marked the end of the team in 1977. So great was everyone's joy when the Air Force re-established the team in 2011 at Beauvechain, on the Air Force's elementary training aircraft.

Fouga RedDevil

The team of experienced instructors at the 5th Squadron is characterised by combining tight formations with solo manoeuvres. Also on the ground, the team likes to make itself noticed among the public. On the occasion of the Belgian Air Force Days, the current team will join one of their illustrious predecessors, the Fouga Magister from Antwerp Airport, for some remarkable formation passes. The instructors responsible for training the new generation of pilots will thus connect with the past in a memorable way.

Don't miss this wonderful tribute to the past and visit the Belgian Air Force Days on 9 & 10 September in Kleine-Brogel. Join the new generation!
