15 magical moments from the World Air Games Dubai
Have you noticed a lot of activity up-above-in-the-sky over the past week? Well that’s because the World Air Games is happening, and this weekend is your last chance to catch the action.
Running until December 12, and with dropzones at SkyDive Dubai, in the desert at Margham, in Al Sufouh Beach and even at Dubai Mall Ice Rink, you’ll find parachuters, gliders, aerobatic pilots, hot air balloons and more taking to the Dubai skies to compete at their disciplines.
For now, here are 15 of the most epic shots of the games so far:
1. Here’s an absolute classic from the one and only Faz.
2. Yes, you’re seeing correctly, that solo glider is upside down. Gulp.

4. Hot air balloons take off over a very Dubai skyline.

7. Yes, those women are STANDING on top of a plane. They’re part of the team of Breitling Wingwalkers: the tradition of people standing atop planes pulling out synchronised moves dates back to 1911.
Breitling announced an exclusive partnership with Skydive Dubai. To mark the occasion, the iconic Breitling Wingwalkers and the Skydive Team, took to the skies to perform aerial display. @skydivedubai @BreitlingNews Часовой бренд Breitling анонсировал о начале сотрудничества со Skydive Dubai.

9. There’s nothing like a surprise fly by from the legendary aerobatics team Al Fursan to make a beach day.
10. We’re getting dragons in-flight vibes from this shot of the UAE’s military stunt team Al Fursan.
