Airshow Dispatches S06E02: Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition

LIMA Langkawi returned for the first time since 2019, hosting the national aerobatic teams of China, the Republic of Korea, the United Arab Emirates, Indonesia and Russia. However, the stars were the Royal Malaysian Air Force displays, including solos by the F/A-18D Hornet and Su-30MKM, as well as their famous ‘Opening Gambit’, featuring more than 30 jets, transports and helicopters in a tightly-choreographed eight minute performance.
