Here are some of my pics from The Paris Air Show. Unfortunately, many of them are similar if not almost identical to photos already posted by other users! Although most of you are probably fed up with Le Bourget shots, try to enjoy! :D

Excellent shots there Luke. I wish I could have gone, seemed like a better show than Farnborough last year (Civil Aviation wise). Regards Flex 35

There was definitely lots on offer, but one thing I hated about the Paris Air Show and probably the only thing that would put me off of going again was the disorganisation of the whole event.

Thanks everyone! T5, I agree with you - It took ages to get out because the que for the shuttle bus was really long, and then once on the bus it was so crowded and hot. We got a police escort though, with police bikes making cars get out the way and wait on the pavements so we could get through! When we got to Le Bourget RER station the whole place was extreamely busy and waiting for the train took ages. All of this in temperatures of about 30˚C. When I went to Farnborough everything was much better organised and there was very little waiting for the buses and trains. Deano777 - Sure, save them if you like! I have some more which I will post later. I need to do some revision now though.. :( Thanks, Luke.

We got the bus from the airport bus station on Saturday, shortly after arriving. That took a while to turn up and we were supposed to buy tickets, but were confused as to how to do it. We got on and the bus driver got off, so we didn't get a chance to buy one. A few minutes later, another bus driver got on and the bus got moving, and still, we didn't have a ticket. Anyway, we got there for free and done the same on the return, so it wasn't so bad. Some say the reason for the delay to our return flight was quite simply because we hadn't bought our bus tickets... :rolleyes:

I prefer Farnborough. Its seems so much more organised there and laid out better. Le Bourget seems very crammed and messy to me... Great shots BTW
