President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday caught Kenyans by surprise when he made an impromptu appearance to the Museum Airshow Festival at Uhuru Gardens, Nairobi.

The Head of State who drove himself to Uhuru Gardens was accompanied by visiting Ethiopian Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed Ali.

The two Heads of State enjoyed the spectacular display of aerobatics by Kenya Airforce jets, and a variety of civilian and corporate aircraft.

The airshow, organised by the Kenya Defence Forces and the Aero Club of Kenya, was held as a forerunner to the official opening of the new Uhuru Gardens National Monument and Museum.

While at Uhuru Gardens, President Kenyatta and visiting Ethiopian Prime Minister made an extensive inspection tour of ongoing works at the redesigned ultra-modern public park ahead of its opening.

Thousands of Kenyans attending the airshow were treated to scintillating aerobatics and extreme maneuvers by Kenya Air Force jets and a rich selection of corporate and civilian aircraft.

Among the showstoppers at the event held at Uhuru Gardens by Kenya Defence Forces and the Aero Club of Kenya were the KAF Turcanos; Mark Henman MX2; Green Eagles Skydive and Skytruck flypast as well as KAF Puma and rappelling.

Also on show were 2XKAF Northrop F5’s; KAF UH1H Huey helicopter flypast and arena landing to collect freefallers; Tobby Dunn’s Farmland Aviation firefighting; KWS’s anti-poaching; KQ’s Embraer 190; Phoenix Aviation’s Cessna Sovereign; and Mark Ross’s Pitts Special.
