Israeli plane set to land in Abu Dhabi after maiden flight over Saudi Arabia

The historic El Al flight from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi has seemingly strayed from its flight path and entered Oman from the UAE for several minutes before crossing back into the Emirates.

It is unclear if the plane is making an unscheduled stop, or if perhaps the deviation was for diplomatic reasons to show off warming ties with Muscat.

The El Al flight has turned toward Abu Dhabi (or Dubai?) after appearing to make another pass over Oman.

Ynet reporter and plane watcher Itay Blumenthal writes on Twitter that the plane did not actually cross into Oman’s airspace.
