Drones create portraits of UAE leaders in the sky


Dubai set a new world record after more than 300 drones drew portraits of Sheikh Mohammed on the Dubai night sky.

The spectacular drone show was a fitting way to mark 50 years of Dubai Police Academy.

A total of 300 drones were used in the 10-minute show and were programmed to draw portraits of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE  and Ruler of the Emirate of Dubai, and Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.

The UAVs wrote a message in Arabic that read "Thank you, Sheikh Mohammed".
