Every two years, an aviation trade market is held at Singapore’s Changi Airport. Except for its size this show is pretty similar to the ones at Farnborough (UK) and Le Bourget (F). Many aircraft manufactures and suppliers represent themselves and are showing off their products. However, here at the Singapore Air Show, aircraft of the trade participants did not fly and could only be admired on the ground only. Airbus decided not to take part with the A380 (for obvious reasons) and flew in a new executive Airbus A318 and their A330MRTT tanker. The Royal Air Force/Airbus Voyager did not stay for long and disappeared on the 15th.
 
The trade event was held from 14th till 17th of February, with the ‘air’show open to the public over the weekend. Only one hour of flying every day provided a huge disappointment despite a top performance from the Malaysia Air Force ‘Smokey Bandits’ with their MiG-29’s.
 
The well equipped static show made up for it. The official website promised that the F-35 would be there. It turned out to be a full size mock up, so was a let down for many. A bit of ‘Hollywood Glamour’ could be seen as Kong-Fu master; Jackie Chan parked his new jet at the static.
 
The trade started of a bit slow and this was little expected due to the fragile economy. Nevertheless, at the end of the week a record of US31 billion was inked with more than 45000 trade visitors attracted.
