Well, it was two fantastic two days with Breitling at the Breitling Dragon Tour event at the Airshow China 2012 in Zhuhai.
Breitling's hospitality was superb, the Jet Team and Wingwalkers perfomances were full of thrills.

A few pcitures here to share with you the great event and experiences.

First, the Breitling Beach Party, where incidentally the new David Beckham promotion was also kicked off:

Next morning we were fitted out with the Airshow passes

Image

20 min bus ride and we arrived at the Breitling "Chalet"

Image

After some refreshments and formalities we were introduced to the Jet Team, the Wingwalkers and Ross the Jetman

The support plane that accompanied the Jets on the long journey all the way from their homebase to China

Great performances from the Jet Team and the lovely Wingwalkers

It was good to see the girls safe and sound and back on the ground

Image

I have to say the Russian team did a great show too and one hell of a noise from those twin jet planes

Image

The Hamilton crew were just looking on

One of the interesting pieces in the display cabinet, the Transocean Unitime Chinese Edition

Hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Thank you Breitling !!!

Breitling China are running a "fly-breitling" club and invited some members to the show.
I was lucky enough to get an invite although I suspect it may have had something to do with the number of Breitlings in my watch collection ;-)

The aviation teams do various promotion appearances.
I believe the Jet Team will hang around in the region for a while and will not be heading home until early 2014.
The lovely Wingwalkers :drool: are heading Down Under but I'm not sure how long they will stay there.
