  • Description

    At Le Bourget, the second airport of Paris, the scene is being set fro the 27th International Air Show. Latest aviation developments from Europe, the Soviet Union and the United States will go on display at the show.

    The Air Show will be a showcase for the world's principal aircraft manufacturers, and will open on May 26. It will be open until June 4.

    Features of the display will be the American Apollo rocket and the Soviet Union's Vostock spacecraft. The Soviet Union is also expected to show its new small jet airliner the Yak-40, but could have other surprises in store.

    The Le Bourget show alternates annually with the Farnborough air show in England, but the French display is usually bigger, since it is unrestricted.

    A mock-up of the Anglo-French project, the Concorde, will be one of the main exhibits.

    About 1,000,000 people are expected to visit Le Bourget. They will see the static exhibits as well as flying and ground displays.

    President de Gaulle is expected to attend.
