In my blog about Dubai Air Show, I had posted some pictures. Since this blog is dedicated solely to aviation, I have decided to post more pictures of the event that took place in Dubai between 11th and 14th November and happened to be the third largest air show in the World and one that is emerging as a leader in Asia, air show wise and also perhaps because this show will have a dedicated new venue in the form of the new Jebel Ali Airport coming up soon.
(Air Show Main Hall)
(ATR display model)
(Sukhoi Super Jet - an Aircraft in the 100 seat category that is being jointly developed by Sukhoi of Russia who are more known for their military Aircraft and the Italian Company Alenia who is well known as the manufacturer of the ATR Aircraft)
(Above and below are the display model of the Cirrus Jet concept Aircraft. It is designed to be a single pilot/owner pilot jet Aircraft. Cirrus is a manufacturer of the famous SR-22 single engine Aircraft that revolutionized the industry with innovative technologies including an in-built parachute system for the entire airplane)
(Above and below is the Cessna Single turbine engine utility Aircraft)
(Different aerobatic teams put up displays every afternoon during the airshow)
(Above and below-The Airbus A380 Super Jumbo made an appearance and put on some flying displays but the Aircraft was in Airbus colors, Emirates Airlines purchased 55 of these at the air show)
The air show ended as a commercial success, with the promise that the next one to be held in 2009 at the new venue will be a bigger version of the event. Watch this space!
