In an initiative in appreciation of the medical teams and staff of the nation, the General Command of the UAE Armed Forces has decided to conduct an aerobatic performance by Al Fursan, the UAE Air Force’s aerobatic display team, over
some of the country’s hospitals for three days starting from June 21.
This message of gratitude was envisioned by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, who has often appreciated the key role played by the nation’s doctors, nurses, paramedics, and administrative and technical staff working round the clock under tough circumstances to ensure public safety and health during the pandemic.
The display will start in Abu Dhabi on June 21 with sorties over Al Rahba Hospital, Sheikh Khalifa Medical City, Zayed Military Hospital, Emirates Humanitarian City, Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City, and Al Ain Hospital in Al Ain between 5.30pm and 6.30 p.m. On the second day, Al Fursan will fly over Al Dhafra Hospital in Madinat Zayed starting at 5.30 p.m.
On the third day, the aerobatic team will be seen in the skies of Dubai, flying over the Kuwait Hospital, and in Sharjah over Al Kuwait Hospital. In Ajman, they will perform over the Sheikh Khalifa General Hospital, while in Umm Al Qaiwain they will be seen flying over the Field Hospital.
In Ras Al Khaimah, the team will be seen over the Field Hospital and Ibrahim Bin Hamad Obaidullah Hospital. In Khorfakkan, it will hold a display over Khorfakkan Hospital, and over the Field Hospital and Masafi Hospital in Fujairah. Their displays will be from 5.30 p.m. to 6.00 p.m.
The Al Fursan team has invited the public to share these moments of pride and unity with the Armed Forces.
