LIMA 2013 Langkawi 26-30 March 2013

Post by Lifeliner 3 »

Noticed on http://www.baesystems.com/event/BAES_154522/lima-2013 :

... a significant Eurofighter presence (the aircraft will feature in the daily Air Display)...

So we can expect a Eurofighter Typhoon display, like at LIMA 2011.

Hey guys,

how long will you stay at Langkawi? We'll arrive on 20.03 and stay until 01.04. We'll rent a holiday home, so we may celebrate a BYOB after-show-party together? Could be funny ... ;-)

Cheers!

I'm glad to see the Smokey Bandits are confirmed. I wonder if the Thai Gripen is flying or not?

If my online translator did a good job, the Knights/Swifts confirmed the participation for Langkawi and Paris:

None was in static in 2011 either, but they did fly a couple (F-5E and F-5F) during the opening ceremony and rehearsals for that.
