This year's show was blessed with fine weather and featured the public debut of the Airbus A400. It is likely to be the last show on this site and the new terminal for the improved airport is taking shape, though dust clouds from the works sometimes blew across the displays and active runway. General Aviation was well represented, as was the US military.
This four day event, 27-30 January is the second of its type, only the final day is open to the public. Menara is the main airport, accessible to no-frills airlines and well connected to both France and Spain. There is a small flying club and a business jet ramp. The event is held on the northern, military side of the single runway and only a small portion is accessible to visitors. Photography is into the sun all day though the static display, although small and densely parked, is well lit, particularly in the morning.
