Bahrain Air Show

Sat Jan 30, 2016 6:58 pm

The airshow is held at Sakhir Air Base 45 mins from the airport. It's in the middle of no-where and you would not get near it apart from the show.
The ME Airlines were all there apart from etihad. There are no great big airliner orders, the flying display 6 out of 10 due to the runway being some way off and it was hazy also.

The best bit however is you can wonder freely around the static. Saudia 777 crew rest area - no problem. Highlight was A340 Biz HZ-SKY1 which access was available. What a plane!
