Air Shows ( Part 1 )

In the effort to celebrate and marvel at our ability to fly and see new technological advances, air shows are held all over the world every year. Attendees get the chance to witness complex aerobatic performances and sometimes up-close access to the aircraft on the ground. -- Lloyd Young

The test comes three days before the start of the biennial Paris Air Show, where Airbus and Boeing traditionally do battle for aircraft orders. The A350 uses light carbon-composite materials instead of aluminum, allowing airlines to make savings on fuel. It will have a capacity of between 270 and 350 passengers and is scheduled to enter service in late 2014. (Guillaume Horcajuelo/European Pressphoto Agency) #
