Places No Comments

The 10th Asian Aerospace 2000 (AA2000) is a 6-day event, taking place from 22 February 2000. The first 4 days of the Singapore Airshow are exclusively for trade attendees and the final 2 weekend days are open to general public at large. Asian Aerospace 2000 was one of the first major air shows of the new millennium. The show highlight was the six-aircraft RSAF Black Knights A-4SU aerobatics team.

Deals worth more than US$3 billion were clinched by participants at the recent Asian Aerospace 2000 in Singapore.

The US Air Force B-1B Lancer (Bomber) was displayed at the Military Area of the show. It is a four-engine variable-sweep wing strategic bomber used by the United States Air Force (USAF). First envisioned in the 1960s as a supersonic bomber with sufficient range and payload to replace the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, it developed primarily into a low-level penetrator with long range and supersonic speed capability at high altitude.
