The MiG-29s formed a five-ship demo team named Smokey Bandits, and that is a quite appropriate name :-) The Krisakti aerial display team is a hybrid, being supported and maintained by the air force and flown by air force pilots, the airframes themselves are not military and carry their chief sponsor’s name (Aerotree). The Lynx participated in the maritime demo before relocating to the airport for the airshow weekend 29-30.

The 2013 edition of LIMA, the Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition, saw generous participation from the air force. Notably the air power demonstration was very impressive. We have tried to give an accurate account of the daily participants that flew from Butterworth where they were temporarily based for the occasion. Numerous VVIPs from neighbouring countries visited along with local top brass and government officials providing daily shuttles. The ship borne assets were harder to pot as the 68 participating ships were mostly offshore.
