Guests will come from all over to check out 99 different types of aircrafts, watch acrobatic demonstrations and see the world’s largest airliner, the Airbus A380, CNN said.
"Over 70% of participants come from overseas, and this year we expect 30% of them to be first-timers," Farnborough International commercial director Amanda Stainer said.
Boeing will celebrate its 100th anniversary on July 15 at the show with a special pavilion called the Boeing Centennial Experience, where visitors can learn about the company’s history.
