The Great 2019 Paris Air Show – This Past Monday June 17th

Oshkosh (in Wisconsin) is the biggest Air Show here in the States, but in Europe, it’s the bi-annual Paris Air Show, held at Paris’ famed Le Bourget every other Spring.  It’s billed as the world oldest show, having been first held in 1909.

Here is the great aviation videographer, Sam Chui’s, BEST OF THE 2019 PARIS AIR SHOW.  It is 23:25 long. Sam shows us all of the very latest in both business jets and regular airline equipment.  He’ll even give you a quick peek at some futuristic automated air taxi designs during his tour.

Remember to go full-screen on both of these videos to more fully appreciate their high resolution photography.  And don’t forget your sound, too.  Here you’ll see the arrival of French President Emmanuel Jean-Michel Frédéric Macron  and other dignitaries, as well.  Mr. Chui will also bring the viewer to the inside displays, where you’ll bear witness to a WWI fighter aircraft, not just the most recent flying machines.  You’ll even get a sales talk from some of the manufacturer’s reps and a few of the well-informed Flight Attendants, too.  Also a cockpit tour of a brand new glass panel LCD display by a female Aircraft Captain.

Next is a video of last Monday’s opener, and some highlights of the opening day of the Show captured by Airailimages on Monday, 17 June 2019. The Russian Beriev jet seaplane air tanker is a must-see.

Also, the Rafale fighter put on a great show, as did Airbus and Boeing large jetliners. It’s a sprawling event with acres of aircraft and vendors. The first part of the week is for business attendees only, but later on the show grounds are available to the public. The show provides a good media platform for photography, which happens to be near a staging area for aircraft in the show. This occasionally has the unintended effect of masking the sounds of the flying aircraft with other sounds on the ground, but the spectacular view offsets that disadvantage.
