    Oh dear...this is like the third time im explaining this ...

    The word Eagle in Arabic is not Al-Tair...it is Al-Nisr...though Al-Tair means the thing that flies...not precisely an eagle...nor a bird...

    Hi,

    FableB is right. As long as I'm arabian too, Altair means anything flies and it's pronounced like this: AT.TA.IR

    Bye<<<<<<<<<<<
