Currently am live in Ratmalana Sri Lanka where the SLAF base is situated.SLAF Sri Lankan Air Force celebrated its 66 th anniversary on 2nd of March 2017 and in line with the anniversary SLAf has organized an exhibition and tattoo at SLAF base Ratmalana.The exhibition was held on 3,4,5 of March 2017 and as those were holidays I decided to visit the exhibition as I haven’t experienced one ever before. I was expecting to see the aircraft display on the exhibition and Parachute show as well. But the exhibition was much more than I was expecting.
I had never seen a tattoo and such an experience can gain very rarely.The tattoo was included number of memorizing events including aircraft attacking, rescuing. It demonstrates the offensive roles, humanitarian assistance in disasters. The tattoo showcase the capabilities of SLAF multipurpose air assets and the brave of soldiers as well.
The Lineup of events for each day would included a Fly Past, Aerobatic Displays, a Parachute Display, a Display by Regimental Special Forces, an Air Dog Show, a Band and Drill Display, a Cultural Show and a Musical Extravaganza with the participation of popular bands in the country.
The entrance fee was limited to Rs. 50 and it was more worth than the price. Life time memorable event for me and love SLAF.
