Remote-controlled planes take Al Ain aerobatic show to new heights

posted on 29/01/2009: 1522 views



Dazzling displays by remote-controlled planes got the Al Ain Aerobatic Show 2009 off to a flying start as their larger counterparts banked and rolled to the amazement of thousands of spectators here on Wednesday.

The Italian maestros of the Yakitalia and Pioneer display teams wowed crowds with their performances and Will Curtis went solo in his bright-red Rizon-sponsored Sukhoi 26.

Pilots from the showpiece Aero GP race series – the Formula 1 of Air Racing - took to the skies to put the finishing touches to their displays, before the high-octane competition kicks off on Friday.

At the ground, Hollywood stunt driver, Mark Hager, and his precision-perfect team of experts proved that four wheels are as good as two propellers as they performed the thrilling Hager's Raiders police chase spectacular. And in another regional ‘first', the British Swift Glider Display Team harnessed the power of gravity to perform breath-taking, engine-free stunts in the air.

Al Ain Aerobatic Show is being organised by Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority with the support of UAE Air Force and a host of other sponsors and support organisation from January 29 to January 31.

Daily tickets for the show have been priced at Dh40 per adult and Dh25 for children between three and 10 years of age. Children under three can enter free. – Gulf News
