Alabama aerospace connections on display at Farnborough Airshow

FARNBOROUGH, England — The Farnborough International Airshow is the global industry’s grand event in 2018, highlighted by thunderous aerial flyovers and mind-boggling billion-dollar aircraft purchase announcements.

For the Alabama team at the airshow, the event also represents an opportunity to showcase the state’s deep connections to the dynamic aerospace industry and to spot glimpses of developments that could shape the future of the sector in the state.

One them stood just off the runway at Farnborough — an Airbus A220 passenger jet.

The aircraft, developed by Canada’s Bombardier as the C Series, is expected to be produced at Airbus’ Alabama manufacturing facility through an alliance between the two companies.
