One of the world’s most spectacular flying troupes are set to soar over Dubai on the weekend.

The UK based Breitling Wing Walkers will take over the skies of the Dubai Marina, JBR and the Palm in their UAE debut exhibition as part of the Skydive Dubai XCAT World Powerboating Series; held on Friday and Saturday at the Dubai International Marine Club.

The flying team are distinguished by their two Breitling-liveried 1930s Boeing Stearman bi-planes which they use to execute thrilling aerial stunts that include acrobatic girls battling high speed wind and g-forces to ride on top of the wings of the plane.

“It’s great to have the well-known Breitling Wingwalker team in the UAE,” aid Aed Adwan, Breitling Area Manager for the Middle East region.

“The team represent our passion for aviation and our strong aeronautical heritage. The Wingwalkers help to display our company values of innovation, performance and precision. I would urge anyone interested in aviation and who haven’t seen the team in action, to make sure they take time to watch the show from along the beach area. It’s quite an incredible sight.”
