Airbus At The Paris Air Show (Le Bourget 2001)

Fri Jun 08, 2001 3:42 am


Just thought those of you going to they Paris Air Show this year might like to have some information on Airbus's prensence there. I might (a BIG might) be going to it.

-- On Sunday 17th June 2001, at 10:30, Airbus will hold a press conference. During the show, they will have a special website at which will have such things as news updates etc...

-- People going to the show will be able to visit 2 Airbus demonstration zones. The 1st will showcase ACE. (how Airbus designs its planes). The other will be a 10-seat section of a real A340-600 cabin interior with PTVs and laptop connections to the internet (Airbus AFIS)

-- 3 French army helicopters, a model of the A380 and a model of the European Space Agency Ariane rocket will be displayed in the city-centre of Paris (I really don't know exactly where, I got all this information from a friend)

-- The Airbus stand will have 4 full-size aircraft cross-sections (the A330/A340, A300/A310, A320 family and the A380) Models of the various aircraft and presentations will also be shown in each of the cross-sections.

-- The A340-600 (MAYBE the VS one) will be on flying display between 13:30 and 14:00 daily from the opening of the show until 19th June and on the last Saturday and Sunday of the show.

-- A Beluga will arrive on Friday 15th June. It will be open to visitors during the whole show.

-- An Aeroservices and a Qatar Airways ACJ, will arrive at the show on the 18th. They will perform daily VIP flights.

-- A UPS A300-600 freighter will demonstrate cargo door operations.

That all sounds really good.

Hello WorldTraveller,

As far as I know, they will only bring the B717. I am definitely not sure but that is what I heard.

I thought I heard that the BBJ was going to be there as well, but I can't confirm this.
