Dubai Achieved A New World Record This Week!

On Monday evening, the Dubai Police Academy held a private event to honour 50 years of achievements, and the entertainment for the event was anything from the ordinary. 

With the use of hundreds of drones, a 10-minute display next to the Burj Al Arab lit up the sky, all moving in unison formation to create portraits of the UAE's leaders and a message in Arabic saying "Thank You, Sheikh Mohammed". The show also promoted the UAE's Year of Tolerance message out of the drones. Watch part of the display below:
