Essay topic: Talk about an Aerospace Exhibition

an Aerospace Exhibition

The Singapore Aerospace Exhibition was held at the Changi Airport Terminal for four days. The last two days were open to the public.

As Sunday was the last day, I went with my friends to see the exhibition. Special buses were arranged from the Tampines interchange to the venue of the exhibition.

We all arrived there by 9 a.m. and were shocked to see a very long queue of people at the Changi bus stop. We have no other choice but to join the queue.

The Sun was hot and it was only at 10 o’clock that we were able to buy our entry tickets. There was a drink stall that offered ice-cold drinks and it was a great relief for us.

We went inside the first gallery. A big red striker jet welcomed us. There were officers everywhere guiding us.

There were representative companies from all over the world. Major companies such as Boeing, Lock-head, Rolls Royce, and other European companies monopolized the show.

The equipment was neatly arranged. There were catalogs everywhere. Hangars were converted into galleries. We were astounded to see the various types of aircraft.

Starting from trainer single-seat aircraft, there were planes, jets, and small, medium, and big dragon-size helicopters.

We posed in front of the aircraft and took many photos. The next section was fighter aircraft, like F.16, F.18, and Jaguars Mig 18, 21, and 29.

Each aircraft had its own improvised system. We only partially understood the explanation given by the officers.

We had to queue for a bus to see the passenger aircraft which range from an ordinary ones to the most luxurious ones. There was a large crowd as these aircraft are familiar to most people, unlike fighter jets and helicopters. At 3 p.m. the Singapore Air Force performed a spectacular air show over the Changi sea. On seeing the show our tiredness disappeared. Determined to become pilots, we came home.
