Sitting in his air-conditioned taxi, he waited in the queue at the taxi rank at Dubai Airport Expo during the 10th Dubai Airshow, as the aerial display occurred.
“My job is good,” he laughed. “Every time we come to the queue, we watch the show for 5-10 minutes. All the drivers drop the taxi and watch.”
It was the acrobatics displays that caught his attention as the likes of the British Air Forces Red Arrows, Spain’s Patrulla Aguila and Frances’s Patrouille Acrobatique de France took to the air.
“Last time, I watched from Shaikh Zayed Road,” Khalid said. “I’m very happy to be here. My favourite is the ones with the three colours.”
Taxi driver Ayub Khan was among the crowd of cream coloured cabs casting his eyes skywards during the afternoon aerial display between 2pm and 5pm. “I like the British — the Red Arrows, because they go close,” Khan said. “And the small blue one.”
Nada Akram remembered watching the aerial displays from the windows of her school classroom growing up in Dubai.
She couldn’t believe her luck to find herself working, handing out leaflets, at the Airport Expo during the Airshow. In between work, Akram was sitting on the steps outside watching the aerial display.
“It’s fabulous. I’ve been watching them since school,” she said. “I’m very excited to be working at the airshow.”
