Farnborough Airshow: Day One

It was hot........very hot!!

You'd be forgiven for thinking that you were in the South of France or the Mediterranean rather than Farnborough today, especially if you caught the early morning weather forecast. It certainly didn't forecast the superb sunshine and clear blue skies, but too be honest I didn't mind (and I'm sure thousands of others didn't either) as it meant todays air display at the Farnborough Air show was even more spectacular!

For me the day started early, 6.30am into the Autodesk office which is situated right next door to Farnborough Airport. We were taking advantage of the airshow and had invited a number of manufacturing companies to come and see what Autodesk have to offer.

We spent 90 minutes showing how the Autodesk Digital Prototyping solutions can help manufacturers increase productivity, decrease the number of physical prototypes and help to increase innovation. We also have them an insight into how other industries such as Architecture, Structural Engineering, Civil Design and Visualisation can help.

After a packed agenda we boarded a coach over for the afternoon at the air show where we enjoyed the delights of a superb air display in the sunshine. Here are some of my pictures from this afternoons display:
