Singapore Air Show

I'm not an aircraft buff but for some strange reason, I've always wanted to go to the Singapore Airshow. My brother is a big fan & goes every year.

So naturally since we are around this year, I dragged the family along with me.

The security there is tighter than tight. I guess there were expecting a lot of people. As we were entering, a guy gave us one of his trade passes so we got one free ticket. Yeah.

Don't even ask me what these models are. When we arrived, it was a little too early for the *air show* so we headed over to the indoor booths. Most people were in there to escape the hot sun, stand in line for souvenirs or oogle at the model planes. After a while, we got tired of jostling with the crowd & decided to go back outside which is really more interesting.

The Singapore fighter planes had the longest line as everybody wanted their pictures taken there. Me, I'd rather be flying the planes.

The Americans were out suntanning & ever obliging to have their photos taken. They were awesome.

In the market for a private jet ?

Looks like something out of a sci fi movie

Small distraction as we were waiting for the show to start

Sorry for the bad pictures cos I forgot to bring my zoom lens. Maybe because I had great expectations of the show, it was a bit of a letdown. I wanted to be wowed & that didn't happen. Maybe next year ?

Mei, you definitely took much better photos than those that were published in the newspaper. Those just cannot make it.
