Time to pray… pilots land on motorway

By Staff

Several Saudi air force soldiers decided to cut their mission and land on a motorway in the middle of the day to perform prayers on time.

A photojournalist who happened to be passing on the motorway just outside the capital Riyadh caught the airmen kneeling down on the road while their helicopters were parked nearby.

“Despite the scorching sun and the hot asphalt, the airmen landed their Sikorsky helicopters on the road and performed prayers on time,” Sabq daily said.
