On the evening of June 21, Al Fursan, the UAE Air Force’s aerobatic display team, paid the first of its soaring tributes to the nation’s healthcare workers in the frontline of the fight against COVID-19 in the capital Abu Dhabi.
The display was seen in Abu Dhabi on Sunday 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 6.30pm. On June 22, Al Fursan will fly over Al Dhafra Hospital in Madinat Zayed at 5.30pm.
On June 23 Al Fursan will be seen over hospitals in the emirates of Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al Qwain and Ras al Khaimah.
The display is envisioned as a message of gratitude and appreciation by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, for the nation’s doctors, nurses, paramedics, and administrative and technical staff, working round the clock to ensure public safety and health in the wake of the pandemic.
