With the Farnborough Air Show near London coming up a few weeks from now, has any of you heard about anything space related to happen there? The only thing I see on the website is about Spaceland Italy, but maybe any of you UK members have more information?

Thanks and all the best,

Kirsten

Did any of you go in the weekend, and how did you enjoy yourselves, did I miss something? I was there the Tuesday, met and briefly interviewed Krikalyov but for the rest I found the space bit a tad disappointing so I didn't go a second time.

Was the public able to enter the Airbus 380 in the weekend? I would have loved to do that but I didn't manage to.

Just out of interest: if any US cS-er would like pics of Duxford 'Flying Legends' (3 B-17s, loads of Spits, P-51s etc) send me a mail!
