The 26th International Aerospace Show at Le Bourget will undoubtedly be the largest that has ever been held. Inevitably, at a time when the European industries are attempting to consolidate their positions and the United States industry is pushing hard to improve its own sales and technical standing throughout the world, there will be a highly competitive air about the whole Exhibition. At the same time, many companies will be emphasizing their international links—in terms of collaborative developments, licence production or sales. Organized by the French equivalent of the S.B.A.C. in Britain—the Union Syndicate des Industries Aeronautiques et Spatiales—this year's Salon will follow traditional lines in that each day of the Show will be devoted to a particular facet of aerospace activities thus: June 10 Press Preview; June 11 Official Inauguration by President de Gaulle; June 12 Philately; June 13 Light, Executive and Commercial Aviation; June 14 Space Activities; June 15 Electronics; June 16 Systems and Equipment; June 17 Rotor craft; June 18 French and Foreign Missions; June 19 International Air Display; and June 20 International Flying Display. The Russians will send a number of space exhibits as well as a selection of civil aircraft—including the world's largest helicopter. The British industry will be represented by approximately fifty companies as well as Ministry of Aviation, Ministry of Defence and S.B.A.C. presentations. This preview of the show is concerned solely with the British exhibits, beginning with the major airframe and engine industries.
