Farnborough International Airshow UK, July 19th, 2008

My first visit to this famous airshow, although rather disappointing (not because of the participants, more of the performance in the air and expensive entry ticket for 28).

Absolutely fantastic was the first flight of the restored Avro Vulcan B-2 XH558 and the new Airbus A380. The Vickers Vimy from the 1910s nearly crashed in the strong sidewinds. Other airshow participants included: Red Arrows, Eurofighter Typhoon, Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon, Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, Bell/Agusta BA-609 Tilt Rotor, USAF B-1B and Boeing AH-64 Apache attack helicopter.
