Scenes of the drone show lighting up the skies above Dubai with messages honoring COVID-19 heroes are featured in the video.
The video also showed messages of appreciation and support beamed on Dubai’s major landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al Arab, Dubai Frame, and Sheikh Zayed Road, among others. In a choreographed display, vehicles come together to form the messages ‘Thank You’, ‘To the UAE’, ‘To Our People’, and ‘To Our Heroes’ in both Arabic and English.
