The fifth edition of the Bahrain International Airshow was held at Sakhir Airbase from 14 to 18 November 2018. For the first time since its maiden edition in 2010, the bi-annual show was held in November instead of January to prevent overlap with other shows in the region. 4Aviation made their third consecutive trip to the show.
On Tuesday 13 November a group of photographers gathered at Schiphol for our third trip to Bahrain. Earlier editions of the Bahrain International Air Show (BIAS) proved to be very interesting, so expectations were high. Via a stop-over in London, picking up some more photographers, we arrived at Bahrain International late in the evening. We picked up our rental cars and headed to our hotel, a fifteen-minute drive.
