Emirates announces low-level Dubai 7s flypast

Emirates has confirmed that they’re going to do a low-level flypast over the Dubai Sevens Stadium to mark the UAE’s 50th birthday.

The special flypast will take place on December 3 at 3.40 pm. So make sure to have your phones and cameras out at the ready if you’re at the rugby!

And keen plane spotters will note this is the second Emirates flypast in recent weeks. You wait years for a Top Gun moment and then Emirates turns it on twice in a year!

PRIVATE JET WITH SUNDECK AND GARAGE SHOWCASED AT DUBAI AIR SHOW

You think you’ve seen it all, and then you see a huge private jet decked out with a garage and sundeck on display at the Dubai Air Show.

The private jet is the idea of Lufthansa Technik who want to create the superyacht equivalent, but for planes.

The high-end Explorer cabin uses a wide-body Airbus A330 as its base. And then creates a retractable sun deck, four double bedrooms, a gym and a garage from the rest of the space.

“We came up with the idea to show an aircraft which is like a flying hotel so that guests who are chartering the aircraft can have a round-the-world trip in two weeks,” says Wieland Timm, head of sales for VIP & special mission aircraft at Lufthansa Technik.

The idea is to create the next line in luxury travel. Instead of chartering your yacht around the world, you simply fly to your own landing strip and start your travels.

Plus, the interior will be lit by Diehl’s projection technology, meaning you can have virtually anything beamed onto the roof of the plane. Like this cool disco scene!
