Every two years the eyes of the aviation world turn to a small airport southwest of London for the Farnborough International Airshow. This year’s show runs from 11 to 17 July, and is open to the public the weekend of 16 and 17 July. Aircraft manufacturers bring their latest and greatest, new products are unveiled, and airlines announce major purchases. Each day also includes a flying display, much of which you can track on Flightradar24. We’ve put together a short guide to tracking some of the interesting aircraft appearing this year in Farnborough. We’ll also be at the airshow on Thursday, 14 July so be sure to check our Twitter and Facebook page for updates.
Not all of the aircraft listed are necessarily part of the flying display, though they will be attending Farnborough.
