In the run-up to Qatar National Day, the country’s Armed Forces have been holding rehearsals before strutting their stuff during the annual parade.
Here, they can be seen practicing their show at the Al Khor air base. According to photographer Ray Toh:
“The shows were amazing, one excitement after another and a grand finale with fireworks from the parachuter clothedin LED clothing.”
Qatar resident Peter Draper, who in that past has worked with troops as they practice for the show, added this short clip of a parachuter on Instagram:
In addition to the parade on the morning of Dec. 18, there are a host of other QND-related activities going on this weekend. Here’s our guide to them.
