Boeing announces plans for Farnborough Airshow

CHICAGO, Ill., 30 June 2012. The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA) has announced that its 787 Dreamliner will participate for the first time in flying displays at the Farnborough International Airshow, which runs July 9-15 outside London. Boeing also will be presenting its Enduring Awareness Pavilion, a display of advanced command, control, communication, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities.

A Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Qatar Airways livery will be on static display on the 9th through the 11th. Boeing plans to fly the airplane in the daily show displays. The airplane itself will be open by invitation only.  In addition, Korean Air will display its newest Boeing 737-900ER on the 9th through the 12th. Boeing will feature the new 737 MAX with a program update, and a full-scale model of the 737 MAX Advanced Technology winglet will be on view in the Boeing static display area.


The Enduring Awareness Pavilion will be an interactive exhibit focused on C4ISR across different operational domains such as air, land, sea, space and cyberspace. It will showcase more than 20 technologies, including the P-8A Poseidon ASW aircraft, space-based space surveillance system, airborne early warning and control, eXMeritus HardwareWall, unmanned airborne systems such as ScanEagle and Phantom Eye, and other C4ISR capabilities. The pavilion will be open during normal air show hours for all visitors.

During the show's daily flying display Boeing will demonstrate the capabilities of its multi-role F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fighter. Also on the flying program are the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey tiltrotor and the tactical and strategic C-17 Globemaster III airlifter. The company and its customers will display other systems as well, including the F-15E Eagle fighter and the AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter. Visitors will be able to see these aircraft until Sunday, July 15.

Together with the Royal Aeronautical Society, Boeing is presenting airplanes built by students at the Yateley School in Hampshire and the Marling school in Gloucestershire. They are the first two complete planes among the six being built by schools participating in the "Schools Build a Plane Challenge," an initiative providing students in UK secondary schools with the opportunity to build an operational light aircraft from a kit.
