The ADEX (Aerospace and Defence Exhibition) takes place at the Sinchonri (K-16) Air Base East of Seoul and serves mainly as a showcase for the local defence industry. It is one of the few chances to see Republic of Korea Air Force (RoKAF) jets in the air and take a closer look at them on the ground.

Starting with a CN-235 and six KT-1 trainer aircraft a similar composition of a C-130 Hercules with six KA-1 light attack aircraft followed. The parade was concluded with 5-ship formations of fast jets: F-15K Slam Eagle, (K)F-5 Tiger II and (K)F-16 Fighting Falcon flew by, the latter two trailing a huge veil of blue, red and yellow, thus representing the Korean-style "Sam-Taegeuk", which stands for the relation between heaven, earth and humanity.

Frontline aircraft were represented by solo displays of a KF-16D Fighting Falcon as well as the F-15K Slam Eagle. Though not as dynamic compared to some other jet displays, both jets gave some nice opportunities to get decent photos during their routine which did deserve many thanks due to their rareness.
