Flying over the Al Ain desert, and who did we happen to come across…why our friends the Huawei Twisters, of course! And even better, we had some cameras with us…see the resulting shots below!
The Twisters’ pyro display is another standout from this spectacular show.
Here’s the final line up for Al Ain. What a privilege it is for us and South Africa to be present at an Air Show with some of the top teams in the world!

Red Arrows – UK National Display Team

In preparation for the team taking part in the 2013 Al Ain International Aerobatic Show, we have dismantled the aeroplanes, and they’re now on their way to the United Arab Emirates.
The aircraft were put into the containers on 11 October, and were shipped to Khalifa Port Abu Dhabi, via Durban. They are scheduled to dock on 10 November, then go to Al Ain by road.
The technical team — lead by Dennis Spence, with Albert Hemsted, Peter van Rensburg, Andrew Nunn and Jacob Mabulatana — leave Johannesburg for Al Ain on 17 November, via Abu Dhabi, on Etihad Airlines, to re-assemble and test fly the aircraft, before the other team members arrive on the 27 November.
