Farnborough Airshow - Tuesday

Farnborough Airshow - Tuesday

Postby Disaster Area on Wed 13 Jul 2016, 8:41 pm

After a hectic few days at RIAT and the British Grand Prix it was time to pay the bi-annual visit to Farnborough. after Mondays wash-out I wasn't sure what to expect but the staff on the site had done an amazing job overnight preparing the site for the following day. They were still working during the day moving chalets etc around from soft ground onto hard standings. Fortunately, although it did rain, it was nothing like the downpours experienced the day before. I don't generally photograph the static as it tends to be quite well packed and this year was no exception so I concentrated on what was happening on the runway after having a look around the exhibition.

Firstly a pre-display arrival!

Airbus kicked things off(after the UAV's) but for some reason the A380 didn't fly, the A350 and A400M made an appearance - more pics to follow
