Northrop to skip Paris air show

WASHINGTON, Jan 2 (Reuters) - Northrop Grumman Corp, maker of the Global Hawk unmanned plane, said on Wednesday it would not participate in the 2013 international air show in Paris to save money,
but could beef up its presence at air shows in Australia and the Middle East.

Lockheed Martin Corp has also scaled back its spending on air shows in recent years, reducing the number of executives it sends and relying more on local employees. But the No. 1 Pentagon supplier still plans to participate in the Paris show this year, said spokeswoman Jennifer Whitlow.

Budget Cuts May Cost U.S. Trip to Paris Air Show

WASHINGTON — Facing the prospect of dramatic budget cuts, the U.S. military may skip the Paris air show this year for the first time, Air Force officers said Friday.

The move is among an array of cost-saving measures the Air Force has drawn up in case Congress fails to clinch a budget deal by March 1.

Without an agreement in Congress to avert automatic spending cuts, military funding would be slashed by roughly $50 billion from March to the end of September, when the current fiscal year ends.

For the Air Force, the cuts would amount to about $12.4 billion, according to Jamie Morin, acting undersecretary of the Air Force.

If the automatic cuts go into effect, the Air Force plans to cancel a third of its flight hours through September, furlough 180,000 civilian employees and scrap deployment plans for some squadrons, among other steps, officials said.

In addition, “aircraft participation in airshows could be cancelled,” said Tonya Racasner, spokeswoman for the Air Force.

The Pentagon has always made a point of sending warplanes to major air shows, including the Paris showcase at Le Bourget and the Royal International Air Tatoo in Britain.

Hi,

I've read today the follow information about the Paris Airshow:

Info Boeing: All indications are that this is the Boeing 787 of Air India will have an demo at Le Bourget. Indeed, during a test flight as the BOE787, it is quite possible that it is this 787 will fly at Le Bourget. In this case, Air India will have its 787 after mid June It remains a possibility, to be continued.

About the rumours that the Russian Knights and Swifts are coming to the Paris Airshow, the people of the paris Airshow have told me:
Yes, it was announced by the pilots themselves on their site. As against the only thing we do not know is when during the week they will be there.

They people of the paris Airshow hope to published the complete list into the next 2 weeks.

Hi spotters,

I've found some new information about the paris Airshow:

Alenia Aermacchi Will Celebrate its 100th Birthday at 2013 Paris Air Show.

With its founding on May 1, 1913, Alenia Aermacchi will celebrate its 100th Year of operation with a display of a veritable squadron of its leading products, both past and present, at the 2013 Paris Air Show at Le Bourget, France. The show which runs June 17-23 will see Alenia displaying their current product lineup of trainer and warbird aircraft such as the Eurofighter Typhoon, M-346 Master, SF-260 and the MC-27J Spartan in addition to some of their notable past models.

The company has come a long way from its birth when 10 workers built the first Nieuport-Macchi monoplane in 1913 to the company of today which employs over 12,000 and produces some of the most advanced aerospace products in the world.

Among the vintage aircraft on display will be an original Aeronautica Macchi MB.308, the first aircraft designed and produced by Macchi after the end of World War Two. Designed by Ermanno Bazzocchi, the MB.308, which performed its first flight in 1947 was the first in the line of many trainer aircraft produced by the company since, from the MB.326 and the MB.339 to the current M-346 and SF-260.

There are believed to be ten MB.308s still flying in the world today, the example on display at the Paris Air Show is the 71st aircraft to be built out of a total production run of 220, and is one of very few to be directly delivered to a non-military client. Andrea Rossetto, its current owner, president of the Historical Aircraft Group ( HAG),purchased it in Germany in 2005 and proceeded to restore the plane, investing approximately 2000 man-hours to bring the craft to original condition and winning the prestigious International Phoenix Diploma for the best amateur restoration of a vintage aircraft and the silver medal at the World Air Games in Turin, both in 2009. The aircraft is restored in its original livery of INCOM (Industria Cortometraggi Milano), the main Italian newsreel producer of the post-war period that employed the aircraft for aerial filming within Italy.

Alenia Aermacchi will also showcase an original SVA 9, a two-seat trainer biplane. The SVA family of biplanes was designed in 1916 by Italian engineers Savoja, Verduzio and Rosatelli who originally intended for it to be a fighter aircraft. About 2000 were built and were widely used by the militaries of Argentina, Brazil, France, Latvia, The Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Russia, Spain and the United States for reconnaissance, attack and training missions.

The SVA 9 displayed at this year’s Le Bourget was built in 1918 and is part of Alenia Aermacchi’s historic aircraft collection. It was discovered in the United States in 1956 by Mr. H.S. Fyfield and restored by Reno Brenner of Aviation Techniques Inc. of Erwinna, Pennsylvania. The aircraft was purchased by Alena Aermacci in 1988, and returned to Italy in 1989, where it underwent further restoration at the Turin branch of the Gruppo Amici Velivoli Storici (GAVS), the Italian historic aircraft preservation society.
