Cutaway drawings are at the heart of what Flight International is about. Once again in 2011, our artists Giuseppe Picarella and Tim Hall have a packed schedule, travelling to factories around the world to peer inside the most intimate workings of the latest aircraft programmes.
They and their predecessors have been at it for over 70 years and the archive of drawings - available to view and buy on our Flightglobal images store - charts a remarkable history of aircraft design. The art of the cutaway has changed dramatically too, from line drawings in the early days to the sophisticated, full-colour, but still largely hand-drawn representations of the 21st century.
Posters this year to look out for include Bombardier's CRJ1000 (29 March), the Northrop Grumman Global Hawk in NATO AGS guise (28 June), the Cessna Citation CJ4 (4 October) and the Grob G120TP (8 November).
