Low turnout on final day of Hyderabad aviation show

Hyderabad: Low turnout was witnessed on the last day of the Aviation India-2010 show after the aircraft crash, which claimed two lives here, dampened the spirits of visitors from attending the event today.

The last two days of the aviation show were alloted for general public viewing, while business visitors came for the first three days.

According to Colonel Vivek Kodikal, Regional Director FICCI, as many as 60,000 visitors including business class visited the five-day event.

“The unfortunate event on the first day and subsequent cancellation of various air shows dampened public enthusiasm,” Kodikal said, adding board examinations was also a factor for the low turnout.

However, observers feel the turnout was less than 40,000 this year as against nearly one lakh in the previous edition in 2008.

“I hoped to see bigger aircrafts and displays.
