Airbus has released a list aircraft to be exhibited at the ILA Berlin air show, taking place from 16 May.
Pride of place at the show, which Airbus majority shareholder EADS considers one of its "home" air shows alongside Paris Le Bourget, will be the A380 ultralarge airliner. The VIP version of the A318 narrowbody emerged from the paint shop last week in full "Elite" livery and could be promoted to the corporate jetliner market at the show (pictured below in Geneva where it has been exhibited at the EBACE 2006 show).
Other Airbus types on display at ILA include the A340-600 and the A310 multi-role tanker transport. Other highlights include the Embraer Legacy 600, the Antonov An-140 and An-148, the Ilyushin Il-76, the Eurofighter Typhoon and the vectored-thrust RSK MiG MiG 29. Helicopters flying include the German Army UHT variant of the Eurocopter EC 665 Tiger UHT and the NH Industries NH90.
Boeing is not present at the show.
