Farnborough Air Show 2012

Farnborough air show this year should be interesting. Air shows successes are measured by the amount of business conducted, usually indicated by the value of the aircraft orders announced. With Qatar Airways, Emirates and Etihad, the traditional mega buyers, indicating there will be no aircraft orders announced this air show, one wonders at how successful this year's show will be.

The sentiment around the show is upbeat and optimistic, and I am sure there will be some NEO and MAX announcements and hopefully a few CS.

Boeing will be showcasing the Qatar Airways B787, readied ahead of time, an event that surely will please Mr. Albaker. Not to be outdone, Airbus threw in the A380 and the A400M for good measure. The weekend display will include a Battle of Britain Memorial and what appears to be the RAF's entire inventory of trainers and fighters.

Air shows should be fun events, business notwithstanding. So hopefully, English weather cooperating, this will turn out to be the most successfully FUN air show
