The annual Al Ain International Aerobatics Championship -held under the patronage of General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces - kicked-off today with world renowned Team Guinot Wingwalkers first up in the "Garden City's" skies.

Flying a pair of 1940s Boeing Stearman biplanes, the two-man, two-woman team Wingwalker outfit entertained the Al Ain crowds with a thrilling display of loops, rolls and low-level flypasts. With daredevil duo Daniella Hughes and Sarah Tanner standing atop the Stearmans' upper wings, the Guinot Wingwalkers revealed they will be performing a stunning new trick at this year's Al Ain showcase for the first time out of practice.

Jointly organised by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) and the UAE Air Force and Air Defence, and in conjunction with the World Air Sports Federation, the 2008 show, which is being held under the patronage of HH General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, will see over 110 aircraft compete in the four-day family extravaganza.- Emirates News Agency, WAM
