Oh look at the newly merged UAE airways :)

Great flypast. Certainly do some impressive displays over there.

I only remembered about the flybys too late in the day to hit up any good spots to get pics, but I saw that they were scheduled to overfly the Grand Mosque (the very last images in the video). I have a pretty decent view of the mosque, so I just waited on my balcony to see what would fly over...

Hahaha, I like that, just don´t expect it will reach the target audience! Anyway, before I thread drift, very nice formation I must say.

Or an ad for Tinder? :biggrin:

Pretty pictures, but the dude won the birth lottery: he was born filthy rich and he died filthy rich, lived a filthy rich life while many around him were poor or even destitute. So what is there to celebrate, that he wasn't a bigger tyrant than he turned out to be?
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

Looks great!
Choose well is an interesting slogan. But doesn't help with increasing EY's brand awareness though.
