Alenia Aeronautica C-27 Spartan military transport aircraft.

This year’s lineup of commercial jets was a bit more interesting than usual. As a surprise, Airbus had a baby blue A380 on display with Korean Air markings. The Korean plane had been flown in to replace the factory demonstrator that was damaged after one of its winglets decided to do some French kissing with an Embraer chalet on Sunday. Highlight of the static display was the bright orange 747-8 Intercontinental that Boeing had flown in. Together with the 747-8 Freighter, the “pride of the fleet” 787, a Qatar 777-200LR and a 737-700 in Air Berlin livery, Boeing had the strongest lineup in many years.

While it may not sound too business-like, isn’t seeing new airplanes still one of the main reasons to come to an air show? Other commercial “metal” came from Bombardier (a very long CRJ1000 plus a Q400 turboprop), ATR (the new ATR-72-600), Sukhoi (Superjet) and Antonov (158). As one of the few, Sukhoi offered the opportunity to participate in a demo flight on their Superjet. While the test aircraft still had the old interior and lots of test equipment, the flight demonstrated that the plane is remarkably comfortable and has low interior noise levels. The Russian test pilot demonstrated that the Superjet

also has super-brakes as he simulated a carrier landing. As a surprise, Airbus didn’t announce the launch of an A330 passenger-tofreighter conversion program. Many observers had expected this as a way to soften the blow from the cancellation of the A320 P-to-F program just days before the show. Bombardier finally was able to announce some crucial new commitments for its CSeries, including a prestigious one from Korean Air. ATR managed to continue its expansion in the lessor market with a breakthrough order from GECAS.

(From L to R) ISTAT Directors Doug Runte and Jep Thornton and ISTAT President Joe Ozimek check out the new Boeing 747-8I. The initials “JFS” on the landing gear panel is in honor of Joseph F. Sutter, the head designer of the 747 series.
