The first day of the 2007 Paris Air Show

The Paris Air Show (Salon International de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace, Paris-Le Bourget) is an international trade fair for the aerospace business. It is held at Le Bourget Airport near Paris, France every odd year, alternating both with the Farnborough International Exhibition and Flying Display and the Internationale Luft- und Raumfahrtausstellung Berlin (ILA).

The Paris Air Show is a commercial air show, organised by the French aerospace industry's body the Groupement des Industries Franx§aises Aéronautiques et Spatiales (GIFAS) whose main purpose is to demonstrate military and civilian aircraft to potential customers. It is one of the most prestigious in the world; traditionally, some major sales contracts are announced during the show as part of the corporate communication of the manufacturers. All major international manufacturers, as well as the military forces of several countries, attend the Paris Air Show.

In addition to industrial visitors, during the closing days of the salon, the show welcomes a large number of public visitors from France and many other European countries, when admission is not limited to visitors with industry affiliations.

The Paris Air Show traces its history back to the first decade of the 20th century. In 1908 there was a section of the Paris Automobile Show dedicated to aircraft, and from 1909 there was an Air Show, held at the Grand Palais. There were four further shows before the First World War. The show re-started in 1919, and from 1924 they were held every two years. The shows were interrupted again by the Second World War, and they re-started again in 1946. Since 1949, they have been held in every odd-numbered year.

The air shows continued to be held at the Grand Palais, and from 1949 flying demonstrations were staged at Orly Airport. In 1953, the show was relocated from the Grand Palais to Le Bourget. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, the show emerged as a powerful international rival to the Farnborough Air Show. The 1971 show featured a full scale mock-up of an Airbus A300 and the 1973 show the new DC-10 and Lockheed Tristar. Among major accidents, there were two crashes of Convair B-58 Hustler bombers, in 1961 (during aerobatics) and 1965 (during landing). The show suffered its worst accident in 1973 when a Tupolev Tu-144 crashed killing the six crew and eight people on the ground.


The 48th International Paris Air Show took place from 15 to 21 June 2009. Recent past Paris Air Show took place on the following dates:

44. 17-24 June 2001
45. 15-20 June 2003
46. 13-19 June 2005
47. 18-24 June 2007
48. 15-21 June 2009

The next Paris Air Show will take place 20-26 June 2011.

1973 Paris Air Show

At the Paris Air Show on June 3, 1973, the first Tupolev Tu-144 production aircraft (reg 77102) crashed. While in the air, it undertook a violent downwards maneuver. Trying to pull out of the subsequent dive, the plane broke up and crashed, destroying 15 houses and killing all six on board and eight on the ground.

The causes of this incident remain controversial to this day. Theories include:

1989 Paris Air Show

A MiG 29 crashed during a demonstration flight with no loss of life. The Russian space shuttle Buran and its carrier Antonov An-225 was first publicly displayed outside of Russia at this show.

The 2005 show, held 13-19 June, witnessed the return of American companies in large numbers following the downscaling of their presence in 2003 in relation to the Iraq War. Another strain in relations in 2005 was the recently launched World Trade Organisation litigation, which involved action filed by the United States against the EU member States alleging WTO-inconsistent subsidies to Airbus.
