Corniche, Doha’s main sea boulevard (Qatar)

Qatar National Day

18 December 2015

On 18 December 2015, Qatar celebrated National Day. A military parade was held on and above the Corniche, Doha’s main      
sea boulevard. The main event started around 08:00AM and to beat traffic one needed to be very early to obtain a good      
spot. The days leading up to the event numerous rehearsals were held. The parade featured two types ordered by Qatar:      
Rafales zapped with Qatari flags, and Apaches, which were brought all the way from Texas by C-17A 02-1109 of the 62nd      
AW to Al Udeid on 13 December.
