Ultimate Airport Dubai – Series 3

The first episode was shown on South East Asia National Geographic Channel last night (Thursday 8 October 2015).

I think this series will definately be on a par with the first one.

I’m not going to give too much away for those who haven’t seen it yet, but no doubt Unidentified Ariel Vehicles (drones) are going to become an ever increasing problem for the aviation industry. A two hour total shut down of Dubai airspace is estimated to have cost several million dollars.

In view of past comments/posts relating to consumption of alcohol and being intoxicated in DXB I am somewhat surprised that two young German honeymooners didn’t have a ‘welcoming party’ on their arrival at DXB. I am absolutely flabbergasted that the police did not want to be involved after they consumed even more booze and became totally paralytic in the terminal whilst waiting for their connecting flight to BKK. Poor Mel was left to deal with the situation, which she did impeccably. IMHO I think they were extremely lucky to get away with only having to rebook their flights at only $1,500.

Thanks for the update. I think I'll have to look out for this episode now!

It's nowhere to be seen online!

Wikipedia shows that Episode 1 aired on 7th Oct, but there's actually no sign of it anywhere!
How long does it take to appear on torrents, or even anywhere on the internet for that matter?

Same question as N830MH!

Would it be possible to record it on an STB in UK or South Africa and upload it online?
Or is that illegal....

Just asking :P

Yeah, unfortunately, I can't watch it. We have COX Cable. Is those show will be on TV? I am not quite sure. I don't know which channel is that.

Everyone got Android TV boxes now. No need for YouTube?
