3rd Dubai International Parachuting Championship & Gulf Cup 2011 - Daily Diary - 2nd December

Day 2 - December 2nd


Independence Day - A Public Holiday and Day of Celebration



No holiday for the skydivers - particulary Accuracy with the usual early start, wheels off at 8.00 am.  Soon the skies were filled with canopies as the Formation Skydiving Teams jumped rounds 3 and 4, and the Canopy Piloting competitors completed the first round of Speed.    Everything stopped at 4.00 p.m. for the aerobatic flying display as part of the anniversary celebrations - but before that, not to be outdone, the Canopy Piloting teams built a 16 way formation and flew the AEU flag into the arena.  We will have pictures to put up later.
