Show Report

Farnborough International

2000

Show details
Date 22 - 29 July 2000
Weather Very changeable throughout the trade days. Warm and sunny for the public days (Sat - Sun)
Positive Points Fast moving flying display with few 'gaps'.
Negative Points A very cramped static display, even more so than usual and a rather short flying display. Also, is it me or are the British public getting worse at leaving places in a complete mess? The airfield was absolutely smothered with litter at the end of the day, which is surely the kind of behaviour (and despite warnings) that will threaten the existence of these shows in the future. All it takes is one piece of FOD to bring down a plane - and that'll be the end??
Highlights Airbus A340, Eurofighter, F/A-18E Super Hornet, SU-32MF Flanker.  
Other comment Fortunately, the change of date to July had little effect on the 'feel' of the show, which was traditional Farnborough.
