    Dubai World

    UAE 999 seems to be currently doing touch and goes at the New Dubai World Airport....one wonders if this is in readiness for full time ops?

    We'll keep our eyes and ears open on developments...although you may see my other post yesterday on EK999 doing touch and goes all day yesterday at Dubai World ( a first?) which is a sure sign that things are warming up...either they're trying the systems out at the airport or Emirates are trying out the planes !!! ( It means nothing financially as they are all part of the same "company" !!!!!!). Not sure when we will get a little blue cross on flightradar...perhaps that is what Sheik Mohammed is waiting for before they inaugurate flights and officially open !!!!!!

    Probably extra flight playing catch up on the passenger backlog.....Emirates seem to have about a dozen planes sitting around DXB doing nothing so they're well equipped in such emergency situations !
