Photographer's Note

Like many TE members in Paris, I made the day trip to Le Bourget and the Paris Airshow. As there are many pictures(at least two) of the Airbus A380, which was very popular, I chose to balance the equation by posting a picture of the Boeing 777. The Airshow was interesting for many new aircraft and airplance related bits and pieces. There were a couple of diesel engines on display, and this technology appears to become more popular; permitting propeller driven aircraft to fly further, using less fuel and also (and I don't know why) making less noise. For the passenger aircract section my favourite aircraft was probably the Embraer's - I have flown on these aircraft and prefer the more personal nature of these aircraft (compared with the impersonal super jumbos). And for the private aircraft, the Diamond DA42 Twin - this aircraft is as innovative, if not more so, than the Airbus A380; but as most people will never get the opportunity to travel in one it gets less attention (more details at: http://www.diamond-air.at/en/products/DA42/index.htm)
