MAKKAH/RIYADH: The Grand Mosque in Makkah is filled to the brim with worshippers these days as hundreds of thousands of pilgrims have come from all over the world to perform Umrah and attend taraweeh and qiyamullail prayers, seeking the blessings of Lailat Al-Qadr (night of power).

The Civil Defense department in Makkah gave Arab News a rare opportunity to take aerial photos of the Grand Mosque on the 21st night of Ramadan on Saturday sitting in their helicopter and at the initiative of Maj. Gen. Muhammad Al-Harbi, commander of aviation in the Kingdom.

The S92 model helicopter was piloted by Capt. Abdul Aziz Al-Dhufyan and 1st Lt. Ziyad Al-Otaibi.

The helicopter had come from Jeddah and was flying at a height of 4,000 feet at a speed of 80 knots.

The trip covered the central region of Makkah and the Arab News photographer was able to take shots of the whole of Makkah from various angles. The camera focused on the newly established Makkah Clock on the King Abdul Aziz Endowment Tower.

The helicopter flew over the Misfala, Kuday, Ajyad, Hafair, Hajoun and Aziziya areas that were crowded with vehicles carrying pilgrims and worshippers. The pilots gave instructions to Civil Defense ground staff based on information they had on traffic in various parts of the city.

The trip on the helicopter, which is mainly engaged in search, rescue and fire extinguishing operations and airlifting patients, took about an hour and half. The plane can carry up to 22 people.

مكة.. لوحة بانورامية تشع نوراً على ارتفاع 3 آلاف قدم

Mecca...panoranic view at 3000 feet heigh


بدا المسجد الحرام وعلى ارتفاع 3000 قدم كلوحة بانورامية مرصعة بالألماس، مزجت بجموع من المصلين وهم يؤدون صلاة التراويح وسط روحانية المكان والزمان فمن خلال المنظر الجوي للعاصمة تشاهد الحرم المكي عقدا من تحيط به منازل أهل مكة كأنها فوانيس.

رصدت «عكاظ» نبض مكة المكرمة والمنطقة المركزية خلال رحلتين قبل الإفطار و أثناء صلاة التراويح على متن طائرة طيران الدفاع المدني من طراز (S-92) الجديدة والتي تعد من أحدث الطائرات العمودية في العالم.

انطلقت الطائرة بالرحلة الأولى الساعة الرابعة عصرا من قاعدة الطيران المدني في حي العوالي، حيث استمرت الرحلة زهاء الساعة الكاملة تم خلالها رصد حركة توجه الصائمين إلى المسجد الحرام وانسيابية الحركة في المنطقة المركزية، حيث يصل الصائمون إلى الحرم بمجموعات صغيرة.

الرحلة الثانية انطلقت من نفس المكان باختلاف الزمان الذي كان عند الساعة العاشرة أثناء أداء المصلين لصلاة التراويح، حيث إن المنظر على ارتفاع 3000 قدم أشبه بالخيال فمن هذا العلو يمكن رصد جميع الطرق وتحديد المناطق الحرجة للدخول والخروج للحرم، حيث كانت أغلب الطرق المؤدية للحرم في المنطقة المركزية هيأت للمشاة بينما كانت هناك بعض المواقع التي تشهد كثافة للمركبات.

ساعة مكة التي تقف شامخة كأطول ساعة في العالم بدت كذلك جوا، حيث يتعجب لمشاهدتها من يقف على الأرض أو في الجو فهذا المشروع الضخم أصبح علامة فارقة بعد المسجد الحرام في مكة المكرمة، حيث منظر الساعة مع المسجد الحرام أشبه برسمة يعجز عمالقة الرسامين عن طباعتها.

خلال طيران الطائرة على المسجد الحرام ظل أشعاع ليزر يدوي يوجهه أحد الأشخاص من أحياء مكة يلاحق الطائرة في كل مرة تمر من فوق الحي الذي يسكنه، حيث أن الإشعاع يصل إلى الطائرة التي تبعد 3000 قدم عن سطح الأرض.

قائدي الطائرتين اللتان أقلتا «عكاظ» كانا متعاونان بشكل كبير جدا مع المصور في الارتفاع واختيار زواية التصوير.

وأوضح اللواء محمد بن عيد الحربي قائد طيران الدفاع المدني، الحقيقة أن الطائرات الحديثة في أسطول طيران الدفاع المدني، والتي وفرتها حكومة خادم الحرمين الشريفين لخدمة قاصدي وزوار بيت الله الحرام مجهزة بأحدث الأجهزة لتنفيذ كافة المهمات والعمليات المطلوبة أيا كان نوعها، مع إمكانية تجهيز كل طائرة بما يلزم لأداء مهمات بعينها وعلى سبيل المثال، تجهيز الطائرات بجردل الإطفاء سعة 650 جالون لمكافحة الحرائق، أو تجهيزها بونش للإنقاذ أو كافة التجهيزات الطبية لأداء المهمات الإسعافية مثل أجهزة الإنعاش الرئوي والتنفس الصناعي وتخطيط القلب وجهاز الصدمات الكهربائية، بل وتم أخيراً تأمين حاضنات لحديثي الولادة ضمن التجهيزات الطبية للطائرات الخاصة، بتقديم الخدمات الإسعافية.

Again: No religious discussions in here please. I deleted several posts bitching about it.

Next time I encounter someone starting and/or proceeding such kind of discussions here, he will at least get sanctioned with infractions.
