Scale model of an Etihad A380, with 4 working jet engines, weighing almost 20kgs...!

Flies very nicely indeed. Built by a team from South Africa

The Free Divers line up in front of the VIP tent, after a jump from 13,000feet, amazing sight this lost dropping in

Hang Glider pilot Dan Buchannan from the USA is disabled. Smoke, streamers and fireworks used to great affect
