With all the great news that's been popping up for the past year and this week to boot, I got thinking about when we will get to see all these great things in person and found that 2009 seems to be the magic year for aviation. Here is a list of things we can hope to see at the Paris Airshow.
787-9 Demo Aircraft
777-200LRF Demo Aircraft
747-8 Flight Test Aircraft
747-SCF (If Boeing can spare one)
A350 Flight Test Aircraft
A380-800F Demo Aircraft
Bombardier CSeries C110 or C130 (Stop laughing, It could happen)
F/A-22 (Demo team should be running by 09)
C-17A+ (If funding happens)
P-8 MMR (Funding/Aircraft Available?)
JSF-B (If the British fund it in time)
Embraer Phenom 300 or 100 VLJ
Rumored Cessna "G5 Class" ULR Aircraft.
