AUH airspace closed due to military activity...

So seems something is up in AUH airspace. Hold on all departures out of dxb and apparently EY has had atleast 8 diversions due to military activity.

No estimate when airspace will open again so seems like something serious...

Looks like AD are deploying Patriots at the airport and at the Umm Al Nar Power and Desalination Plant.

Thumbs up

777boy: I've seldom seen a clearer and more approriate response on PPRuNe (to EchoKilla's question re "where are all your sources?") Photos are so much better than press releases -- or press denials.

This was the catering truck that, allegedly, was hit by a Houthi drone. Not sure that even the boys in Satwa or Karama could rebuild it. Stay safe out there friends. Drones and Scuds to add to that long list of reasons to think about leaving. It's not just about fatigue and the cost of living. It might even boil down to just living.....
