The Farnborough International Airshow

The Farnborough International Airshow (FIA), which takes place every two years, wrapped up yesterday in Farnborough, England. Attracting thousands of companies and generating billions of dollars in business, the FIA is considered one of the biggest aviation events in the industry.

Several planes and other aviation gadgets were on display, while planes like the Royal Air Force Red Arrows and a restored Vulcan bomber made a flypast at the show.

One of the biggest attractions though was the Boeing 787 Dreamliner which flew in from Seattle. The plane was originally supposed to make an appearance at the last show in 2008, but was unable to due to manufacturing delays. For enthusiasts of this new and highly anticipated aircraft, a video of the 787 landing at the FIA is located below.
