Last weekend, Cheongju International Airport hosted Seoul Air Show 2013 an event linked to the International ADEX (Aerospace & Defense Exhibition), that will be held from Oct. 29 to Nov. 3 in 2013.
The event, one of the most interesting in the Asia Pacific region, provided an opportunity to have a close look at the main South Korean Air Force aircraft some of those developed by Korea’s aerospace and defense industries.
Photographer Rodd Pacion attended the air show and took the following interesting shots.
