Farnborough Airshow 2014

Yesterday I had the opportunity to visit Farnborough Airshow together with a Swedish delegation. This is the place to view aviation excellence and of course the Swedish company SAAB had a major presence at the fair. I had the opportunity to see various flying displays and met with SAAB representatives. The visit also included meetings with other companies with strong connections to Sweden.

During the visit I learned many things and one thing that was really interesting was that the life span of a fighter aircraft is 50 % linked to the engine.
