Flight International’s 22 July issue has a comprehensive report on last week’s Farnborough air show, with all the big stories outlined and analysed in full.
It kicks off with one of our most stunning covers ever: Rich Cooper captured the Airbus A350 commencing its air display just as its A380 stablemate was landing behind it after completing its routine.
It really sets the theme for a show in which the big two’s widebody strategies featured strongly. Airbus captured the main headlines with the – largely expected – launch of the A330neo. We have four pages on the programme, including Boeing’s – not surprisingly less-than-impressed – reaction.
There are also some 25 further pages of news across all sectors, ranging from the F-35′s no-show and radar boost for Eurofighter, to the UK’s space strategy and the latest on the CSeries grounding. We explain why Akbar Al Baker was furious that he did not have an A380 in his aircraft display, how Saab hopes to sell Gripens to the Swiss despite a negative referendum result, and how Boeing has raised the stakes in narrowbodies by offering 200 seats on a 737 Max 8.
