The Bleriot XI, the world’s oldest plane, will make a regional debut at Al Ain Aerobatic Show later this month, among a number of contestants coming to display breathtaking flying stunts.

The plane was built in the early years of last century and it crossed the English Channel from Calais to Dover in 36.5 minutes, securing a place in history books, said the show organisers.

The Bleriot XI also performed its first flying loop in 1913 at one of the first ever air shows in Europe. “This plane has been making a regional [Middle East] debut at the Al Ain International Aerobatics Show a century later,” said the organisers.
