Hereunder we post a few interesting things/videos/planes which we saw, recorded or noted on site:

1) MRJ First Taxiing June 8, 2015

MRJ (Mitsubishi Regional Jet) has successfully marked a first taxiing test at the Nagoya Airport on June 8, 2015 by Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation (MITAC) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI).

Besides the 70-seat and 90-seat models being tested now, Mitsubishi Aircraft is planning to add a 100-seat version. So far, 400 units (purchase options included) have been sold.

A mock up was shown in the MRJ chalet at the Bourget show. The following video was shown by Mitsubishi Aircraft at the GNIC symposium.

2) The US-2 from ShinMeiwa

The US-2 is an Amphibian Aircraft for Sea Search & Rescue, Maritime Patrol, Emergency Transportation and even Fire Fighting! ShinMeiwa was present at the Bourget on the shared SJAC booth.

3) The A380 demo flight at the Bourget show

Ten years after the A380’s quietly impressive airborne choreography wowed the crowds at its Le Bourget debut, AIRBUS continues to insist that a commercial breakthrough for the world’s largest airliner is on the horizon, even if it now concedes its flagship is not going to transform long-haul flying in the way the world’s first jumbo jet, the Boeing 747, did in the 1980s. However, with airlines and passengers having had plenty time to get used to the ultra-large airliner and no orders for the type for many months, even Airbus’s modest targets could be ambitious.” (Source:
