Unstaffed combat vehicles
Other unmanned combat vehicles at the air show draw the attention of military staff. The show, held every two years, is taking place at Le Bourget, an airport on the outskirts of Paris.
Solar Impulse project
Members of the Solar Impulse project show off a scale model of their planned aircraft. Their goal: to fly around the world with the solar-powered vehicle.

One of the stars of the show is the new superjumbo Airbus A380, which is designed to hold up to 800 people.

Not all the designs at the show are new. This is a replica of one of the earliest aircraft, Albert Santos-Dumont's 14 bis model, which flew in 1906.
