There are two big shows where the worldwide aerospace industry gets together to do business. This year it’s Farnborough.

These shows are where airplane geeks get to see all the latest things that fly and where engineers can get together and see the latest stuff.  The size of the combined deals every year rivals the GDP of a fairly large country.  So these shows are a big deal for the aircraft, parts and supplies manufacturers.  When I was in the industry I just missed the Shows by not being in the right  job at the time.

 

 

It’s also where there have been more than normal amount of very expensive accidents as the companies try to show what there stuff can REALLY do.
