With 1,062 participating companies this year, the Singapore Airshow 2018 will kick off this week with conferences and business forums for aerospace industry players along with visual treats for members of the public.

The bi-annual aerospace and defence event will also return with the aerobatic displays by local and international teams, which will take place during the trade days (6-9 February) as well as the public days (10-11 February).

At the media preview on Sunday (4 February), Yahoo News Singapore caught a glimpse of what visitors can expect to see at the show.
