  • ANALYSIS: What you will and won't see at 2015 Paris air show


    ​Paris is the undisputed queen of the air shows. The most venerable – the first was staged in 1909 – it is also by far the largest, with over 2,200 exhibitors and almost 140,000 professional visitors turning up to the 2013 event. The week-long bonanza – with four trade days – is not to everyone’s taste. Its sheer scale and location – on a business airfield in a down-at-heel suburb north of the city, often gridlocked during the week – mean getting into and around the show can be difficult. Humidity and frequent downpours can add to the discomfort. However, there is no doubt that the biennial event remains the place to meet and be seen for anyone in the aerospace industry.

    ​Given its current fleet size of fewer than 100 Saab Gripen C/Ds assigned to four frontline squadrons and two training units, it is hard to imagine that at the height of the Cold War Sweden had the world’s fifth-largest air force, and the ability to mobilise almost 10% of its population for military action if threatened by Moscow.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Swedish-air-force-wary-of-Russian-manoeuvring-412272/
