Etihad aircraft and Al Forsan Aerobatic team perform a flypast.
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE and official sponsor of the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, has performed a spectacular flypast of Yas Marina Circuit.
Moments before the start of the 17th and final race of the 2020 Formula 1 calendar, Etihad’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner was accompanied by the Al Forsan Aerobatic team in the skies above Yas Island.
Terry Daly, Executive Director Guest Experience, Brand & Marketing, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “Since its inception in 2009, Etihad has been a proud title partner of the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. One of the highlights of the race is the flypast by the Etihad Airways Dreamliner and the Al Forsan aerobatic team which is watched by millions of viewers around the world.”
Flying above the iconic Yas Marina Circuit’s start line at 600ft, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, decorated in a Formula 1 themed livery, was operated by a team of four experienced pilots. Captain Mohammed Al Tamimi was in command of the aircraft, supported by Captain Spiridon Nakos. Seated at the rear of the cockpit was Captain Abdullah Salah and Captain Fouad Al Marzooqi who have the challenging of task of maintaining split second accuracy on the timing of the flyover.
