SGAirshow16: Pre-show walkaround
February 14, 2016 • Leave a Comment
Work and a much-needed vacation will keep me from attending the official days of this year's Singapore Airshow — an event I'd attended religiously since the year 2000 edition of the show (then know as Asian Aerospace).
Nevertheless, I managed to squeeze out some time this arvo to do a quick walk around on what was available then (not much really) on the show grounds before the displays will be ringed up with annoying barricades in the next day ot two.
