I just read today that the Farnborough airshow had only 100 static display aircraft in the 2004 show. I wonder how many aircraft were on static display at Paris last year. Is the Paris airshow bigger and better?

In 2004, there was a fair bit of talk of Farnborough dwindling in comparison to Paris, and even questions of whether it was worth continuing it in the future, or consolidating to the bi-annual Paris Air Show. I was just reading an article about this recently, though I can't recall where exactly.
Given this year's Farnborough seems to be a reversal of the trend, to borrow the phrase, stories of its demise have been greatly exaggerated...
