Patrol d'France to amaze Muscat on Friday

So you've heard of the Red Arrows (shown above). And you've probably been to their shows more than once if you're about as old as I am.

But it seems, this time, that on the occasion of the Omani National Day nearing - due on the November 18, 2007 - yet another airplane acrobat group has been invited to the Sultanate of Oman. The group is called Patrol d'France.

According to the small article provided by the Times of Oman;

The team has a rich history in air acrobatic shows.

On July 14, 1986, on the anniversary of the US Independence, the team presented a historic show in New York, which was hailed by the media.

In 2000, the team organised an Asian tour and in 2004 the team conducted over 45 shows within and outside France.

From September 24 to November 15, 2004, the team toured several Asian countries including the UAE, China, Malaysia, India and Jordan. The team members are famous for conducting adventurous flights.

The show can be seen above the Intercontinental Hotel in Shatti Al Qurum around 3:30pm. I am sure the place will be more than crowded by that time.

Have a go at it, enjoy the weather, the show and most of all - enjoy the fun of something you may have never seen in your life.

I'm looking forward to watching the show but I don't think I will be able to make it. Those who live in Shatti Qurum and some parts of MQ are lucky because they would be able to watch the show from their roofs, lol.

Anyways, is this thing going to be aired on TV?

sorry for the late reply. I missed the show, but somehow I don't think it was televised.
