The 51st edition of the International Paris Show ended on 21st of June, 2015. This 7 day event, held bi-annually, is the world`s largest and longest-running aerospace trade show since 1909.
This year the venue of the event was Le Bourget Airport and was open to general public, professionals from the industry and traders alike. As the exhibit took off, the sky was cloudy and rain was being expected but it did not materialize and the show went on as scheduled.
The air show included around 120 of the most innovative and spectacular civil and military aircraft. Some of them performed daily at the Paris show and brightened up the sky.
The Airbus and Boring dominated the event and secured multi-billion dollar deals in the trading with the Airbus stealing the show with a last-minute $14 billion deal.
