As much as I would like to end this series with this blogpost, I simply couldn't because I couldn't incorporate the other photos with this entry. Photo uploading-related issue is really irritating me. I'd rather make a separate blogpost for the rest of the photos than calling our internet service provider. For those who enjoyed my previous posts, thank you very much. And for those whom I bored to death with this series, please bear with me. Just two more days and it will be over. :))) Anyway, let me continue my week-long story.
Another crowd pleaser was PYRO, a jet powered truck with rip roaring brutally-bombastic performance. I wanted to cover my ears as the truck engine fire with its ear-breaking sounds, especially when the bombs were finally dropped into the desert and created a blast. I can say that it was really an olfactory and acoustically unpleasant experience but it was a superb visual treat at the same time.

It wasn't only an aeroshow, it was indeed a show of the best cameras and lenses. From phone cameras and entry level cameras to high-end type of cameras; and from kit lenses to zoom lenses that oftentimes I called "bazooka", everything was there. Owned by the spectators who were sitting on the lower to the upper-most bleachers wanting to capture every moment.

And for those with passion for luxury and sports car, I am pretty sure that the nail-biting on-ground stunt display presented by two professional drivers was really amusing and hit the core of their interest. This awesome Mercedes-Benz latest model was presented by Emirates Motor Company, one of the official sponsors of the event.

Please comeback tomorrow if you'd like to see some of the photos of UAE's Mirage 2000 and on or before Tuesday if you wish to see the RC planes and jets, Skydivers, Miss Demeanour, few motor cross stunts and some of the on-ground displays.
Word of the day: sayyara is the Arabic word for car. Salaam!
