Sad news - Capt Ahmed Al-Zahrani dies in accident


Recommended Posts

A Saudi friend has just passed on to me the sad news that Capt Ahmed al Zahrani died in a flying accident this morning. I don't know too many of the details except that he was taking a passenger on a tandem flight - the passenger reportedly survived.

Ahmed taught me to paramotor in Riyadh. He was the most enthusiastic, charming and thoroughly likeable guy. He had a deep love for flying, piloting everything from a Tornado down to a paramotor and most things in between during the course of his life. Always up for adventure - he once flew his paramotor through the hole in the middle of the most iconic building in Ryadh (at 3am, secretly) - he once flew from Riyadh to Jeddah, setting a record in the process, as reported here: http://archive.arabnews.com/?page=8&sec ... m=7&y=2004

Rest in peace 'Abu Nawaf'.
