A flypast over the Red Sea

I’m a sucker for nice snaps and this is one of them. And after my colleague Brendan Sobie interviewed Royal Jordanian CEO Samer Majali for our February cover issue frankly I just noticed the story.

And, as an airline writer who rarely ventures outside commercial air transport stories it’s not surprising I never knew Jordan had its own air display unit – the Royal Jordanian Falcons, which in fact have been flying for over 30 years.

A regular date for the Falcons is a Friday outing to please the crowds aboard this cruise ship, the Thomson Celebration, as its crosses the Red Sea.


As for the Falcons, they fly Extra 300L aerobatic aircraft, and will no doubt have a busy tour scheduled this summer across Europe. I can’t find their 2008 flying schedule yet, but this site might help.
