FLIGHT INTERNATIONAL celebrated its own centenary earlier this year, and next week will see us introducing a series of innovative features in the way that we cover the first big air show of our second century. Most notably, our traditional hospitality chalet will this year be turned into the nerve-centre of the Flightglobal/Live@Paris multimedia operation.
Visitors will be able to visit the busy editorial room as five issues of Flight Daily News and the 23 June Paris report issue come together, and watch our products take shape via a bank of giant plasma screens. Flightglobal will also be covering the show in other ways, with webcasts featuring video interviews with leading industry personalities and highlights from the air display. There will even be an opportunity for trade visitors to record their thoughts about the show or present their company's services via a "voxpop".
Those not visiting the air show will be able to keep up with all the happenings via the Paris air show channel on flightglobal.com, Twitter, RSS feeds and by following our regular bloggers.
Our AirSpace galleries will feature images of all the aircraft at the show and AirSpace users have a chance of seeing their photos appearing in Flight International. We will be choosing the images which best capture the atmosphere and highlights of Paris for a photospread in our 30 June issue. Pictures must be posted by Monday 22 June.
