Asia’s largest Air Show opened in Hong Kong (Photos)

The world’s biggest passenger jet flew through Hong Kong harbour Monday to mark the arrival of Asia’s largest air show.

The double-decker Airbus A380 roared past the city’s famous skyscrapers to open the four-day Asian Aerospace International Expo and Congress, now a purely civilian show after years of focussing on military and commercial aircraft.

After 25 years in Singapore, Asian Aerospace is being staged in Hong Kong, with delegates from the mainland’s aviation authorities and airlines among some 10,000 visitors expected to check out the latest products on offer.
