Abu Dhabi Air expo reopens as weather improves in UAE

Abu Dhabi Air Expo, being held at Al Bateen Executive Airport, reopened today at 10am after being forced to suspend activities on Wednesday because of extreme weather conditions in the city.

Today is the final day of the air expo.

The event was closed at around 11.25am on Wednesday when a thunderstorm hit, with strong winds blowing through the chalets, chairs, tables, and banners placed around the outdoor exhibition site which features jets, helicopters and other aircraft.

All people were told to evacuate the site until further notice.

Some damage has been reported at the exhibition site.
