is anyone planning to go to the Farnborough International Airshow 2014 ? Personally I have never been to a civilian aviation airshow so I am sure it is going to be an interesting experience?

Just a couple of weeks now to the event. Some data from the official site
Airshow Organisers, Farnborough International Ltd today confirmed a record number of requests to exhibit aircraft at the Farnborough International Airshow in both the static aircraft park and the flying display including more large bodied aircraft than in recent years. To date over 70 aircraft are confirmed as part of the static line-up and a further 23 for the flying display.
The show will also feature a number of Farnborough firsts this year across the seven days including the F-35 Lightning and Textron Airland Scorpion through to classics such as the ME262 and Spanish Navy’s Sea Harrier which will be flying here for the first time.
The theme for the public airshow this year is 100 years of aviation and will feature aircraft from every decade of the past century. The public weekend will also commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the first world war with a display by the Great War Display team.
In line with the Company’s strategy to advance the public weekend, FIL has secured more flying and static display aircraft than ever before appearing for the public. A highlight of the new look public area this year will be a ‘training zone’ with military training aircraft on show from the past century.
Another new feature of the static display will be the vintage aircraft collection tent, where we will have examples of aircraft from the dawn of aviation up to and including the first world war such as the Sopwith Camel, Wright Flyer and Bleriot XI.
For Futures Day a highlight will be a flying display from 2 aircraft completed as part of the Boeing-Royal Aeronautical Society Schools Build a Plane programme.
