Well first off, I would like to congratulate UAE on this special occasion of the 45th National Day! I would also like to extend my greetings towards His Royal Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Emir of Dubai, as well as all the rulers of Emirates of the UAE and the people of the UAE as well!
Before we enter into the weekend, I must say that Etihad Airways gave us a splendid signature flyby along with the UAE National Aerobatics Team at the capital, Abu Dhabi. Well, it was indeed a grand spectacle for the 2016 F1 Grandprix! The flyby features the amazing A380 by Etihad, along with a flag display from the Al Fursan jets. Let’s have a look shall we…
Of course, with all this celebration, let’s not forget to remember the UAE’s Brave Heroes with a 1 minute of silent prayer at 11.30AM on 30th November, 2016.
Mark your calendars for this!
