At the weekend, HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai organised a spectacular drone show alongside @Brand_Dubai to thank the frontline workers during the pandemic crisis, report whatson-ae. A two minute video was then posted on social media for the citizens to view and enjoy.
The video begins with a quote from the Sheikh, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai stating, “There is no impossible where there is faith and determination”. It then shows footage of iconic buildings in Dubai, such as the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and Dubai Frame, illuminated with the colours of the UAE flag.
Next, police cars and motorcycles, ambulances and fire trucks are filmed driving their way down Sheikh Zayed Road with lights ablaze only to stop and form the words ‘Thank You’ in both Arabic and English when viewed from above. The video then moves on to show hundreds of drones taking to the Dubai skies to repeat the ‘Thank You’ message.
The drones display the UAE flag in colours of red, green, white and black, while officials and policemen offer a salute to the flag. The unmanned craft take the shape of Sheikh Mohammed’s three-finger salute – which stands for Win, Victory, Love.
The drones then form the outline of the Ruler of Dubai’s face, which results in cheers and claps, followed by the spelling of the words ‘Thank you heroes’.
The craft then take the form of emojis displaying a hand symbol with water drops, a face icon with a mask on, and two stick fingers with ‘2m’ placed between them – sending out a very important and clear reminder to all those watching to take the necessary precautions to stop the spread of Covid-19.
The video ends with the drones taking the shape of a globe and portraying the words ‘stronger together’.
