This weekend was the Singapore Air Show (which I didn’t attend) but it got me remembering a time when we went DID go to an air show nine years ago when we lived in the Middle East.
My son was heavily into airplanes as a child, from Spitfires to jet fighters, so we
dragged drove ourselves across desert to the Al Ain Air Show. Al Ain is a city in Abu Dhabi and borders Oman. The show ground was on the outskirts of town as you can see from the above photo.
I had just bought a new digital SLR camera so I was keen to try it out. Here are a few (of the many photos taken for my son!) of the airplane display show. It was a brilliant day.
