Once again Etihad Airways has teamed up with the UAE National Aerobatics Team to bring their signature flyby to life at the 2016 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Al Fursan (“The Knights”) is the Arabic name of the aerobatics team of the United Arab Emirates Air Force. It was founded in 2010 with Aermacchi MB-339NAT jetplanes manufactured in Italy. The team consists of seven planes which are all used for flight demonstrations. As often claimed, the seventh plane serves as a backup, but all seven aircraft demonstrated their skills at the IDEX 2015 Show in Abu Dhabi. The United Arab Air Force received practical and technical assistance from the Italian aerobatics team Frecce Tricolori. For more please check out www.etihad.com
