Boeing to “showcase safety” at Paris Air Show

A new interactive exhibit will “demonstrate how Boeing is building the future”, and there will be a 787-9 flight display.

Boeing says it will showcase a broad range of commercial products, services and technologies at the Paris Air Show, which runs this year from June 17 to 23 at Paris-Le Bourget Airport.

The company’s presence and activities at the show “will demonstrate its commitment to innovation, industry partnerships and safety”, it maintains.

At Boeing’s exhibition area, visitors will be able to “immerse themselves in a large 360-degree theatre and learn more about the company’s capabilities throughout the product lifecycle”.

The interactive display will also be designed to highlight the manufacturer’s latest family of aircraft and services and give visitors a first look at its “vision for the future of mobility”.

In addition, Boeing will hold a series of news briefings during the show.

On the airfield, an Air Tahiti Nui 787-9 will “demonstrate the breakthrough capabilities and innovations that have made the 787 a favourite of both operators and customers”. A 737 Boeing converted freighter and ‘passenger air vehicle’ will be on static display.

A number of Boeing defence platforms will be on show too, including the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter, the CH-47 Chinook heavy-lift helicopter, the F-15 fighter, the P-8 maritime patrol aircraft and the international air show debut of the KC-46 tanker.
