Hello everyone,

now the Paris Air Show is officially over, I figured it might be nice to show of some picks. All of these shots were made using a Sony F717. No processing was done other than resizing them.

If anyone has some more pictures, I invite you to add them!

The first pick I am posting is a model of the 7E7. I must admit that on the photo's I always thought it looked lame, but the model looks really nice!

The ERJ-170! This plane had to do a demonstration flight but was parked in the static surrounded by people. So how do you get it to fly? Well, you tow it through the public of course! A number of gendarmes and officials on bikes surrounded the plane. The bikes were connected by police lines so that no one would get to close. This way the plane had a mobile barrier!

Very, very , very nice shots indeed! Qatar one is nice, and the 777 looks great.

Who else besides me thinks the the Deramliner(7E7) looks like a longer version of the EMB170???? Or is it just me who thinks that? :p

I think Boeing should keep to the original 7E7 design

I agree, too.

I have to say though, that is a completely pathetic attempt by Boeing to create a jet for the future.

Why do manufacturers assume that everything in the future will be sized out of proportion and distorted though? The cockpit windows look stupid - like the aircraft I guess. It's just another 757/767 with silly windows and winglets.

Sorry, drifted completely off-topic there!

I meant to thank you for your great photos! :D The 773ER looks absolutely brilliant.

Thanks for all the comments,

I must admit I did not like the looks of the 7E7 at first too, but since I have seen the model I think it looks rather nice!

It does indeed remind me of a EMB-170. The cockpit also reminds me a bit of the AN-22 and the Spruce Goose because it seems to be hightened a bit, as if it is lieing (sp?) on the fuselage. About the tail... well.. I am still not to enthiousiastic about it. It score an 8 on my "bull****-o-meter".

Again thanks for all the comments.
