The Monday launch of the UAE's reconnaissance satellite ‘Falcon Eye 1' has been pushed back once again due to high-altitude winds in French Guiana, Arianespace has announced.

The UAE's fourth reconnaissance satellite was first set for its launch to space on Saturday at the Guiana Space Centre in French Guiana. But due to bad weather conditions, the launch was pushed back to Monday at 5.53am UAE time.
