I visited the Paris Air Show on the 20th and 21st of June this year, and apart from learning a lot in the halls and on the static display, I also took some photos of the flying and static displays. It turned out that the public days would have been far more suitable for good display photography because you can get closer to the runway and the most interesting acts (namely the Patrouille de France and the Airbus A350 just days after its first flight) only displayed on these days.
But here you go:
One of several Eurocopter Tigers in the static display.
Swiss Air Force Aérospatiale AS 332M1 Super Puma (reg. T-324, c/n 2364).
“Electric Green Taxiing System” demonstrator aircraft; EGTS International (Safran/Honeywell) Airbus A320-212 (reg. F-HGNT, c/n 234).
Solo display of this Edge sponsored by Breitling.
Dassault Rafale solo display.
British Airways Airbus A380-861 (reg. F-WWSK, c/n 095, normally G-XLEA), the first A380 flown by British Airways.
