Al Ain Aerobatic Show postponed for a year

The 10th annual aerial display was originally scheduled to take place during this year's National Day weekend.

The 2012 Al Ain Aerobatic Show has been postponed until 2013.

When asked about the reason for the delay a spokesperson for the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, the air show's organising body, said "the authority has embarked on a review of the annual event aimed at its further enhancement and development".

The 10th annual aerial display was originally scheduled to take place over the National Day weekend from Friday November 30 to Sunday December 2 at the Al Ain International Airport.

The scheduling of the event around the holiday was intended to, "give UAE residents and international visitors the chance to travel to Al Ain for a long weekend break," said Faisal Al Sheikh, Events Manager at the Authority.

The 2013 dates have yet to be announced.
