Al Ain Airshow 2006

In 2006 we were proud to be invited to the Al Ain Aerobatics Show. Located in the United Arab Emirates Al Ain is an oasis only 130 Km from Dubai. This city is rich in arab culture and has many fascinating places to visit. With temperatures in January averaging 20 degrees C it is a welcome break from our British climate.
The Al Ain Aerobatic Show 2006 also hosted the FAI World Aerobatic Grand Prix. Organised by the UAE Air Force and Air Defence and the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority this airshow is truly a premier event. But what of the flying? Well the organisers not only invited some of the most spectacular display pilots to their show but also chose the widest range of aviation performers. Also displayed were the latest additions to the UAE airforce; the Lockheed Martin F-16E Block 60, the Mirage 2000-9, and the AH-64 Apache. With flying starting at mid day and finishing at 7pm spectators were constantly enthralled.
