The airshow is held at Sakhir Air Base 45 mins from the Airport. Its in the middle of no-where and you would never get near it outside the show.
It's not a place for big jet orders, the air display I would rate as 6 out of 10 as the runway is quiet a way off and it was hazy. The best part by a million miles however is you can wonder around the static aircraft at your leisure.(US Air Force apart where you get a guide)
All the middle east airlines were there, Qatar A380,350, EK A380, Kuwait A330 and A320, Saudia 777, Gulf Air 320, Air Arabia and Saudi Gulf 320.
Highlight of the static was A340 Biz HZ-SKY1 where you could walk around inside!.
