You have to be an industry professional to visit England's Farnborough International Airshow from July 14 through 18, but anyone can enjoy the event on July 19 and 20.

Perhaps the show's most popular feature is its daily four-and-a-half-hour flying display of the world's most advanced aircraft. Many of these aircraft are also on static display, so visitors can appreciate their finer details.

The biennial airshow, which is marking its 60th anniversary this year, also provides an opportunity to see manufacturers' latest offerings for the business jet market. Among the exhibitors are Bombardier, Cessna, Dassault, Embraer, Gulfstream and Hawker Beechcraft.

For more information about the airshow, call +44 (0) 207 227-1043 or visit www.farnborough.com.

“I guess an airplane is pretty decadent, right? But if anyone has a problem with that, tell them to go f--k themselves, because I will live in that trailer [I own] in Alabama before I give up that f--kin’ airplane. That airplane is, hands down, the greatest luxury a human being could have. There’s nothing that f--king beats it. F--k a yacht. ”

-musician Kid Rock, when asked to name his most decadent purchase
