Dubai Air Show and Burj Al Arab
German Version - please click
December 2003 the biannual "Dubai
Air Show 2003" took place. Here are some impressions:
The Chalets of the Aircraft Companies - The Russian Mig 29 is still one of the most attractive Fighterplanes I have ever seen.
Compared to Le Bourget (Paris) and ILA (Berlin) it has not been very crowded as you can see.
Stealth-Bomber -117, C17 und F-15
A nice contrast: F-117 and the Saudi Guard with traditional dress.
A drawing of the 7-star Hotel Burj Al Arab can be seen on the licence
plates of the Emirate of Dubai. It really has a very attractive architecture
but with 2000 $ per night it is fairly expensive. The Intercontinental or
Hilton in Abu Dhabi where I used to spend my nights is a low cost offer compared
The Jumeira Beach Hotel also looks pretty, it is situated opposit of
the Burj Al Arab. I have taken this and the following shots from the Marina
Fishmarket Restaurant which has been built at the end of a 300 m long pier.
The colors keep changing permanently - a great view. Taking a slow walk
back from the Restaurant to the Jumeira Beach Hotel with temperatures of
appr. 80 F with a view like this - that´s something, isn´t it.
