Airsports.tv will stream a live, online broadcast of the Al Ain Aerobatics Show Jan. 29 and 30.
The aerobatics show, which will be held at Al Ain International Airport in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, will feature more than 23 international teams of top pilots from Croatia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, the United States, and more. Ramping up the adrenaline for this year’s event, the South African Goodyear Eagles Aerobatic Team will attempt a never-before-seen triple synchronized inverted parachute drop while three aircraft perform a formation loop.
The Al Ain Aerobatics Show is unique in its merging of military and civil aircraft for extraordinary stunt displays and lively competitions. To view the full schedule of events and for additional information, visit the Airsports.tv Web site. Airsports.tv will stream the show from 4 to 9 a.m. Eastern time both days.

A father and his 14-year-old son were helping another pilot ferry a newly purchased aircraft from California to their home field in Virginia. The three made an overnight stop in Albuquerque before flying on to Illinois for fuel. But shortly after they parked the aircraft in Marion, Ill., they were approached by as many as 18 uniformed and non-uniformed law enforcement officers who came running toward the airplane.
