Farnborough predictions: I expect some 7E7 excitement...maybe SQ and/or Chinese airlines, if they haven't ordered already. Wouldn't be surprised to see a European airline get on board too (LH? EI?). On the Airbus front, maybe a couple more A380 orders, maybe the Virgin USA order--again, if they haven't ordered already by then. Should be interesting to read about, as always...wish I could get there in person!

Le Bourget museum is great. And there is also a shop where you can get books, models and anything else related to aviation, very reasonably priced (at least for the Herpa models of which they have a very good stock). There's a regular bus that goes there directly from Gare d'Austerlitz.

Don't forget that SAA will be doing a flying display at Farnborough with a 744, by all acounts this should be something spectacular, I've seen 743 displays here (and been on board one display on a 346) and what they do with that aircraft is fantastic!
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...
