Asian Aerospace attracts Chinese elite

Models of the latest commercial aircraft offerings from China, Japan and Russia took centre stage last week as Asian Aerospace 2011 opened in Hong Kong.  Some 12,000 trade visitors, and more than 270 exhibitors from 32 countries, took part in the three-day biennial event – moved this year to an earlier March date.  And this month, exactly 100 years ago, Belgian-born Charles van den Born piloted a Farman biplane from Sha Tin beach, giving Hong Kong its first powered flight. 

The star turn of the show was an enlarged and dedicated business aviation exhibition and static line up – where 22 leading business aircraft types were on display. www.asianaerospace.com
