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.
Working in partnership with the World Air Sports Federation, Airsports.tv works to promote air sports competitions and athletes and bring them to the attention of a wider audience. For more information, visit the Web site.
