The penultimate day of the Dubai Air Show 2021 commenced with a fascinating combined flypast by the IAF’s Suryakiran Aerobatics Team and UAE’s Al Fursan Display Team.
Nine Hawk 132 of the Suryakiran team flew in synch with seven Aermacchi MB-339 of Al Fursan over important landmarks of Dubai like Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab, in a display which signifies the deep camaraderie and bonhomie between the two Air Forces. The Suryakirans also participated in a late afternoon aerobatics display which was highly appreciated by the crowd. The ever-increasing popularity of the Tejas was reinforced by the superb demonstration flight flown by the fighter in the afternoon today.
The aircraft manoeuvred effortlessly, showing off its agility and versatility; a testament to the rapid strides that the platform has achieved in recent times.
