The Al Ain International Airport, near the cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, will once again come alive with heart stopping aerial action. The Al Ain Aerobatics Show will take place between the 24th and 27th of January 2008 and will give spectators the opportunity to see some of the world’s greatest aerobatics performers in action. High speed airplanes executing death defying stunts have always captured the imagination of those who can only dream of flying, and the Al Ain Aerobatics Show is guaranteed to get the adrenalin pumping and spectators watching in awe.

This year, the Al Ain Aerobatics Show has invited top aerobatics performers to participate in the 2008 celebration of aviation entertainment. There are a few well-known teams for spectators to look forward to. The Hungarian Airlines Boeing 737 pilot, Voltan Veres, is known for pushing the limits. This amazing stunt pilot has taken part in many international air shows and managed to be entered into the Guinness Book of Records for the second time at the Al Ain Aerobatics Show in 2007, by setting the world record of executing 408 consecutive rolls in his aircraft. Those who attended last year’s show are waiting in anticipation to see what Voltan Veres will pull out the bag this year.

Another magnificent team to attend the air show is the Wizards Team from South Africa. They are known for their precision flying and breathtaking aerial maneuvers in their performances, which combines the use of Extra ES 300 and Pitts Special S2B aircraft. After winning the Al Ain Aerobatics Show prize in the 2005, the Saudi Hawks will be back in action this year, striving to win the title again. The Saudi Hawks have always been capable of keeping spectators spellbound with their risky and daring formation flying, and this year should be no different. Wingwalker, Peggy Krainz from Austria, will be entertaining the crowds with her super ability to climb out the cockpit and walk onto the wings of her airplane at speeds of between 130 to 240 kilometers an hour. Mikael Carlson from Sweden also has a great number of aerobatic stunts to share with the air show, and the Jordanian Falcons will prove why they are considered to be one of the greatest formation flying teams in the world. Team Guinot from the United Kingdom, the only formation wingwalking team in the world, will be at the 2008 Al Ain Aerobatics Show, to take spectators on an aerial journey of a lifetime.

Over and above the magnificent aerobatics performances, the air show will have a great number of exhibits to walk through. Some of the exhibitors include the Emirates Scout Association, Soldier Magazine, Al Jazeera Micro Light Flying Club, Air High School, Mobile Observatory, New Vision Training Centre and the Al Ain University of Science and Technology. Six restaurants will be at the show to take care of the refreshment requirements of visitors and there will also be a children’s play area. For a day of spectacular aerial wonder, join the fun at the Al Ain Aerobatic Show.
