With poor weather conditions including dust storms and high wind speeds having forced the cancellation of planned flying displays on the first two days of the 6-9 March World Defense Show (WDS) in Riyadh, some of Saudi Arabia’s military assets continue to provide the main attraction in the static park.

Bad visibility at the purpose-built WDS show site, which is located in the desert around 70km north of the capital city, also led to a planned opening ceremony and flypast being cancelled.

The event was planned to have a 2h flying display each day, commencing at 15:00 local time.
