The sky is the limit at Farnborough Airshow

Airbus A380 landing at Farnborough Airshow

Farnborough International Airshow is one of the biggest airshows in the world, situated in Hampshire on Britain’s oldest airfield, still in operation. The event is primarily for people in the aerospace trade, but two days are dedicated to the public and this year it’s on the 24th and 25th of July.

The airshow demonstrates commercial, civilian and military aircrafts to potential customers and investors and during the two days visitors can experience hundreds of both historic aircrafts and new developments. The show is only held every other year and the last one in 2008 attracted over 153,000 visitors throughout the public weekend. There are four indoor exhibition halls and every day visitors can see the impressive 4½ hour flying displays with running commentary, static displays, interactive rides, seminars and a funfair.

Tickets costs £25 in advance or £30 at the entrance. Children under 16 years go for free. To get information about Farnborough International Airshow or buy tickets online, please visit www.farnborough.com.

And if you do visit this spectacular event, please let me know how it was so that I can hit myself one more time for not planning to go this year.

    Hi,

    Get the central line (red) to Bond Street and then Jubilee line to Waterloo where the train runs to Farnborough.

    Find your journey planner here: http://www.tfl.gov.uk
    Train times: http://www.nationalrail.co.uk

    You can also go to Farnborough Airshows website (see link in blog entry), from there you have “General Info”, “Getting there”.

    Cheers
    Towe
