Singapore Air Show

Singapore Airshow, Asia's largest aerospace and defence event, was a joint venture between the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore and the Defence Science & Technology Agency. It was one of the top three air shows in the world and served as a global marketplace and networking platform for the military and civil aviation community. Singapore Airshow 2008 was held from 19 to 24 February 2008.
The show drew bouquets and brickbats from the public. Criticism was leveled at the long waiting times due to huge throngs of crowds, jams, overcrowding which pointed to, in part, the poor organization of the show. There were also complaints about insufficient traffic signs leading to the destination and traffic conditions.

Due to the long waiting times caused by jams, overcrowding, long queues, some who had paid $20 for a ticket, simply headed home, refusing to fall prey to the long and nerve-wracking queues.

Nevertheless, the show was a spectacular and brilliant display of air power for thousands of Singaporeans who had flocked to the exhibition site. The event was also certainly a revenue spinner for Singapore.
