“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
Going Places: Airshow magic hits the UK
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.
