    What time the exhibition open this weekend, when is the air show.

    How far is Changi beach from the airport itself, I am thinking of going to the beach to snap the far flying plane.

    The timing not correct. If can walk till late night, can even go changi village to see the Agua. Anyone?

    ok, i'm back from the show.

    report is as follows:

    all camera and lenses and tripods are OK. i saw a 300mm f2.8 there today
    polo tee shirts and pants are OK.
    no slippers or tshirts.

    cheapest way to travel is to take MRT to tampines, take bus 19 to exhibition, then take the expo shuttle bus back for free. expo shuttle bus charges 2 dollars when leaving expo.

    basically just be on time for the aerial show and bring big lenses. 500mm and above and a tripod is advised.
    camera and lenses can be brought almost anywhere in the exhibition except for the high security area. can take pictures anywhere except the high security area where an extra security check is needed.

    dont drive ur car there. cars without security clearences will be turned back at changi village security checkpoint.

    lastly, be early. a safe estimation is to be on a shuttle bus/sbs bus towards the show by 10am. cuz the roads will be jammed by the security checks. and after that, u'll have to walk to the entrance and queue up to register....

    yup, that's (almost) all the technical details i've got for today.

    Yes, it's for all trade days.
    My trade pass (yellow) states "Valid from 24-27 Feb 2004. Show Opening Hours Only".

    Just to ask, were there long queues for registration today?

    Hi there,
    thanks for the tip. Glad you found the right attire to get in . Did you manage to use the tripod at all for the airshow??? Hats off to you then!

    Wai,
    yes I'll be there, only by the beach though. 300D, Sigma 70-200 + 2xTC, Crumpler back-pack.

    Regards,

    queue for today was about 10min long just before the airshow.

    didnt bring my tripod though.. i figured the bright sky will kick my shutter speed into overdrive. but then again, my hands are aching from hand holding a 50 500 all thru the airshow.

    Talking

    Hi everybody, Asian Aerospace is coming to an end tomorrow. For those going tomorrow, that is on sunday, my personal advise is go in after the flying display. Flying display is best enjoy at the small area on the right side of the Army Ferry Terminal, if you are facing the sea. There, they are flying directly infront of you. The viewing gallery inside the exhibition area is slightly to the left of the flying display, and it is very disturbing (That's for me personally).

    Last but not least, drink plenty of water. Get a cap.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Unhappy End of AA2004

    Hi folks. The Asian Aerospace 2004 has ended and do you think it will be better that I delete this thread to conserve server HD space, since I started this thread.
