And, as with the last two events, held in 2010 and 2012, it was as if a lot of colour and glamor had descended on the usually desolate part of this island nation. It was once again a time for me to not only be present but also use the occasion to take lots of pictures – only this time round I decided to click faces – people who make the event so colourful. Whether it were military officers or men from around the globe, professionals in the aviation industry or just plain visitors, the opening day presented a glimpse of what is to follow in the next two days.
Shown are only some of the pictures – that made up most of my day one at the event, apart from work. Overall, a day of great satisfaction, not only with the camera but also in terms of meeting a lot of people of diverse cultural and military backgrounds.
Another “fallout” of the show is meeting friends, contacts and acquaintances in Bahrain’s and the region’s aviation industry who take it upon themselves to be present in their enthusiastic best!
There are many more pictures to come over the next two days. It promises to be a weekend with a difference – one that comes only once every two years!
