"Acrobats of the desert skies, the Royal Jordanian Falcons trail ribbons of smoke above desolate Wadi Ramm. Sponsored by Alia, the Royal Jordanian Airline, the Falcons fly their Pitts Special biplanes to entertain small desert villages as well as air-show crowds in Europe and North America."

—From "Jordan: Kingdom in the Middle," February 1984, National Geographic magazine
