For Aviation History Buffs, and for those of us blessed enough to have lived at the time, here is a short (10:10) video of that world-class UK Air Show, one at which our Advisor, Peter Westacott, (2nd from Bottom on Advisors’ Page) often officiated.

AIRBUS 380-DOUBLE DECKS WITH LUXURIOUS POSSIBILITIES
The New Airbus Double-Decker Plane – Let’s Take a Tour . . .
If you have to fly half-way around the world then you might want to do it in a Double-Decker Airbus A380. This particular plane is owned by the Portuguese Airline, “Hi Fly” and features three classes of servic: Economy, Business, and First Class.
Of course, there’s a significant cost difference between the classes, but wouldn’t it be nice to fly in Business – – – or First Class? If travelling in First Class just isn’t good enough for you then you might want to see the second video below, and “buy American” for your luxury air travel aboard a privately owned Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The video tour of the Airbus A380 was taken at the great international British Farnborough Airshow just a few weeks ago. The 1st video is 3:17 in length, and the second, 7:16 long.
Remember: Don’t hesitate to enjoy your full-screen view, and make sure your sound is turned up for both these videos!
And, not to be outdone by the large commercial airline manufacturers, we next experience a visit inside a ultimate smaller business jet, one made by America’s Grumman: its reknown Gulfstream G500. This ship is Qatar Airways’ $45 million version of the aircraft. This video is 3:16 long.
