People set up in strategic viewing spots along the roads,
was a fairly good indication that we were on the right track,
as we made our way towards the Sakhir Airbase to attend the Bahrain International Airshow.
Not being motor sport types, we haven’t taken advantage of the ‘Early Bird’ ticket sales yet…but perhaps we should –
because until recently we had not considered ourselves airshow types either…
The Airshow is a biennial event and one that we would not normally make an effort to attend, however living a more suburban life now without the sea on our doorstep demands new social challenges ….
A dramatic sun set bouncing off a desert setting created beautiful light, adding additional drama to an already charged atmosphere –
Quite Intense and even a bit emotional …
Teams from the Middle East and beyond participate in this stunning show.
