Every year, the Red Bull Air Race Championship is held in Abu Dhabi, and for the 2018 edition--which is the championship's 11th year running-- hundreds of spectators headed to Abu Dhabi's corniche to take in the spectacular.
American pilot Michael Goulian, who has been waiting nine years to take the top prize, came in first with the fastest plane.
"What a season-opener for the #AirRace right here #InAbuDhabi! Congratulations to Michael Goulian (1st), Yoshihide Muroya (2nd) and Martin Sonka (3rd) & thank you to all the pilots for an incredible weekend of high-calibre racing," Red Bull's official account Tweeted.
