The Dubai Airshow was my real first show and I thoroughly enjoyed it, I attended the first two days and then, unfortunately, I got sick so this as well as the rainy weather that was had, restricted me from going the whole week.
I thought it’d be a cool idea to share with you some of my favourite pictures I took at the airshow; all Images are taken by me:

It was also fantastic to see both the Emirates A380 which was fitted with the newer economy seats as well as the new bar area as well as the 777-300ER which is In the new configuration with the new first suites, business class and premium economy seats.

But the best aircraft I got the chance to tour was the private A340-500 which was mind-blowing, crazy, crazy stuff. The aircraft’s carpet is hand-stitched, features Chinese silk tapestries and even has custom Versace plates, glassware and cutlery all made specifically for the aircraft. It also featured nine bedrooms and a large shower that I’ve never seen anything like on an aircraft before. As this was privately owned, absolutely no photos were able to be taken.
Citadel Completions A340-500:
United Arab Emirates Airforce Boeing CH-47F Chinook:
I had an absolutely fantastic time at the show and cannot wait to attend again in 2021. I’m also hoping in the future to attend both the Singapore and Farnborough airshow in the coming years.
