Legendary aerobatic team will take part in this year's show at Dubai World Central next week
The legendary Red Arrows and the UAE’s own aerobatic team, the Al Fursan, will thrill the crowds with flying displays at Skyview at the Dubai Airshow next week, it has been confirmed.
The display will be part of the airshow which takes place from November 18-21 at Dubai World Central (DWC).
The flying display will commence at 2pm and the aerobatic pilots will also be available to meet the crowds, sign autographs and take photos with all the visitors, a statement said.
Skyview at the Dubai Airshow is an event tailored for the public where visitors will have direct views of some of the world’s best pilots in action from a purpose built grandstand.
This year's Dubai Airshow will also have demonstrations from Boeing’s F/A 18 Super Hornet, Eurofighter Typhoon and the Airbus A400M.
The Dubai Airshow has seen a 21 percent rise in the number of UAE companies which will exhibit at the exhibition, while the doubling of space at its new venue location at Dubai World Central is a clear example of the growth in the economic environment since the previous event in 2011.
The 13th edition of the Dubai Airshow is forecast to host up to 60,000 trade visitors and over 1,000 exhibitors, including 226 new UAE based companies signed to date; an increase of 21 percent on the last show in 2011, organisers F&E Aerospace said.
The event will take place at a new purpose-built Dubai World Central site and the 645,000 square metre exhibition hall is more than double the facilities at the old Airport Expo site at Dubai International Airport.For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
Great news...the airshow is kept between 18-21 November...I don't understand what kind of crowd is expected to see on a working day to see, the thrilling Red Arrows. Atleast one weekend should have been covered.
