Fingers crossed I don't think I could go through another one of those mega showers!!!

It doesn't attract enthusiasts for things that can be seen at multiple shows around the country in better photographic conditions for less than the £34 earlybird or £42 in advance ticket price FIA are asking... for the public days.




So your assuming that everyone attending the show is an enthusiast ! ?

If the Sikorsky CH-53K follows up Berlin with Farnborough, it might be worth a trip.

Russian military demonstrator aircraft/displays have been banned from appearing at FIA 2018 by the Government.

There is currently an EU wide ban on the movement of Russian military equipment.

Just trying to avoid their urges to "annex" wherever they land.

This is the very first layout plan, they get updated monthly - the area Airbus usually dominate still shows the 2016 aircraft at the moment :-)

Just downloaded the plan, any idea what the different shading colours represent?

Bizzareley I was just looking at that plan and trying to work out if they had just used the aircraft layout from the last show? There are a couple of new bits like the 757F, Seaking and MRJ so must be a new one.

Airbus A350-200


Andy


Is the -200 a typo on the A350 line? There are A350-900 and A350-1000 variants currently, and a not-yet-built A350-800 (with very few orders).

Thanks
