Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Saif Al Sharqi, Chairman of the Fujairah E-Government Department, attended an aerial display performed by Fursan Al Emarat, the UAE Air Force's aerobatic display team, at the Fujairah Corniche, as part of the 46th National Day celebrations.


The display, which was watched by Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad bin Saif Al Sharqi, President Emirates Bodybuilding Federation, Sheikh Ahmed bin Hamad bin Saif Al Sharqi, senior officials and hundreds of spectators, painted the skies of Fujairah with the colours of the UAE flag, using various jet aircraft, including the Mirage 2000 and F16 fighters.


The Al Fursan or Knights, flying Aermacchi MB-339A jet trainer aircraft, are the UAE Air Force aerobatic display team.


Formed in 2010, the team did its inaugural display at Dubai International Airport in November 2011, to mark that year's Dubai Air Show. The team did an intensive six-month training course in Italy, followed by an additional six-month preparation in the UAE before making its public appearance.

Though the team flies 12 aircrafts, it only displays seven planes representing the seven emirates, team leader Col Nasser Al Obaidli stated. "Every pilot has his own name on the aircraft, which he is well experienced in flying."


The Fujairah International Marine Club organised a sea parade to coincide with the show to also celebrate the anniversary of the 46th National Day, which featured traditional dhows and fishing boats and a diving show.


The Fujairah Corniche also hosted a horse show, a display of vintage classic cars and other heritage events.
