Views from the flight line

The Paris Air Show has turned into more of a business event, rather than an aviation enthusiast event. Nevertheless, the flight displays are still breathtaking, most notable was the MiG-29OVT, demonstrating its unique maneuverability.

Alenia's C-27, recently selected for the USAF light transport aircraft was aso impressive with short takeoff and landing display. A new view in the Paris sky was the Multi-Role Tanker (MRTT), the first aircraft slated for the Australian Air Force is on the static display, while EADS' test aircraft was demnstrated in flight.
