We were up in the tower where the commentators were. It was 91 steps up and swayed at the top. Definitely not for the faint hearted.
But we got a first-class view of the whole aerospace event.
Honestly, I would never have known how to differentiate these aircrafts if I wasn't at LIMA. They all looked the same to me..hehe!
British Royal Air Force's aerobatic team, Red Arrows, blew me (and everyone else) away. Such precision and perfect coordination with a few near misses to thrill the crowd.
Best part of my trip was at the Maritime part of LIMA. We took a boat out for fleet review. We came close to the biggest ship on display - Republic of Korea (ROKS) Dok-do.
We were told by Malaysia Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) PR, Mejar Hanafi, that we were the only media to be allowed on board Dok-do for an exclusively tour. So honoured :) The ship is as long as 2 football fields, carries up to 13 tanks and 13 helicopters, over 400 crews.
Once we completed our shoot, we celebrated with Cendol Pulut and Laksa Power by the roadside. They live up to the name coz both Cendol and Laksa really nice, no kidding.
Great trip, good experience...and my sunburnt arms will remind me of it.
