Farnborough

I went to Farnborough today. The weather was nice, there were no crashes and thanks to some fantastic hospitality from Thomson Airways, UK (and possibly European) launch customer for Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, I had a very nice lunch.

I'll be going back to do a little work on the Aerobility (BDFA) stand on Wednesday, but I won't be rushing back after that. Much of Farnborough has little to do with aviation and a lot to do with business and defence. Walking through the halls it's difficult to tell what some of the stands are actually offering.

Thursday morning I'll be flying out to Oshkosh, a week long celebration of aviation. All of the stalls are about business and there's also a bit of defence stuff sprinkled about, but there's wall-to-wall passion for flying and that's what makes it such a special and uplifting event.
