On Tuesday July 27,2010 a Lufthansa cargo plane crashed in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Its German pilot and co-pilot were injured.
The plane was close to the airport when it caught fire and the engines stopped working.
Then it crashed and split into two halves.
The plane came from Frankfurt to Riyadh and was on the way to Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and then to Hong Kong.
I think it was lucky that the pilot and co- pilot were not killed in the crash.
In the Fedex plane crash in China on March 23, 2009 the pilot ad co-pilot were killed.
On Monday 4th January 2010 a very, very tall building was opened in Dubai.
It is the tallest building in the world!
It is taller than Taipei 101.
Very tall building is called skyscraper.
The skyscraper is 828 meters tall.
It is a 168 story building.
There was a beautiful firework display during the opening.
Its name is Burj Khalifa.
It took six years to build Burj Khalifa.
Dubai is in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Dubai’s flag looks the same as Ajman’s flag.
Ajman is also in the United Arab Emirates.
I wish that I can go there one day.
