21 & 22 SEPTEMBER 2024 - Sanicole Airfield (Hechtel-Eksel)


Commentator Chris Christiaens

Chris started his training as a military pilot in 1976. He started his career as an operational pilot in the 31st Tiger Squadron at Kleine-Brogel on the F104G Starfighter and later on the F-16 Fighting Falcon. Chris then became an instructor on the T-37 Tweet at Sheppard AFB Texas, afterwards on the Alpha-Jet at St-Truiden and finally finishing his career on transport aircraft, Falcon 20, at Melsbroek.

Following his father’s footsteps, the pioneer of the air show commentary in Belgium since 1960, Chris became the regular commentator for the Belgian Air Force in 1995. (After years as commentator for the air show at Koksijde, they even called him the 'Voice of Koksijde').

For several years, he is also providing the commentary at other air shows, such as at Sanicole and Deurne.
