DAY one of public visitation to the 2019 Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (Lima’19) was a crowd-puller, reported China Press.

Thousands of people began queuing up outside the venue as early as 7am.

The crowd’s frustration grew after the wait became longer.

They also complained that there were no clear division of lines and entrances between normal ticket buyers, online ticket buyers and the elderly, disabled and children under 12.

A commotion broke out before visitors entered the venue but once the gates opened at 9am the long queue moved along in an orderly fashion and everything went smoothly after.
