Civil, military aircraft to be displayed at Dubai airshow


DUBAI (PTI): America's Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft will make its first appearance in the Gulf at the forthcoming Dubai Airshow which will feature more than 100 planes including military fighters.

Running from 13 to 17 November 2011 at the city's Airport Expo, the Dubai Airshow will be the biggest yet, with more than 1,000 exhibitors and nearly 55,000 trade visitors, an almost four per cent increase from the previous show in 2009.

The daily flying demonstration will display a full complement of both civil and military aircraft, including the Eurofighter Typhoon, Boeing's F18 Super Hornet and Dassault's Rafale fighter.

Making its Gulf debut is the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and it will be joined on the static display park, among others, by the Pakistan Airforce's JF17 Thunder fighter, the Bell/Boeing V-22 Tilt Rotor, a unique aircraft that can perform both vertical take-off and landing and short take-off and landing, the AAI's Shadow 200 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), the Apache MH-60 helicopter and an array of business jets from companies such as Gulfstream, Bombardier and Cessna.

Alison Weller, Managing Director of airshow organiser F&E Aerospace, said: "The Dubai Airshow is bigger than ever this year and this is reflected in the variety of aircraft, both civil and military, on display and in the flying display, making it a show not to be missed!"
