On Wednesday 20 January the second 4Aviation tour to Bahrain started. Since the first visit to the Bahrain International Air Show was such a great experience in 2014 the decision to go back in 2016 was taken very quickly. This opinion was shared by quite a few since 5 of the 16 participants in 2016 has already joined us in during our 2014 tour. The tour started, as it does so often, at Schiphol in the morning. A British Airways Airbus took us to Heathrow and from there we took a B777 towards Bahrain. We landed there at half pas eight in the evening and after arranging the regular things after arrival (rental cars, local money), and meeting another participant, we drove towards our hotel a little later. The rest of the evening was not very memorable since after buying some snacks in the 24 hour supermarket just around the corner it was about time to go to sleep for most.
