Boeing on Tuesday announced the names of the aircraft that will be part of static as well as flying displays in the upcoming Dubai Airshow (17-21 November).
Defense static displays include F-15 Eagle tactical fighter, KC-46 tanker, H-47 Chinook and V-22 Osprey helicopters. The company will also present Etihad 787-9, Emirates 777-300ER and Boeing Passenger Air Vehicle (PAV) at the event. Among flying displays is Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, the company said in a statement.
The US Department of Defense also will display several Boeing platforms at the show, including an F-15E fighter, an MV-22 tiltrotor and a KC-46A tanker. The UAE will showcase a CH-47F Chinook helicopter.
A 360-degree theatre highlighting Boeing products and a seating mock-up of the 777X plane will be set up at Boeing’s exhibit.
“Boeing's market outlook values the Middle East commercial airplane and services market at more than $1.5 trillion over the next 20 years. Boeing also anticipates 40% of defense and space opportunities in the next decade will originate outside the US, with strong platform and services growth opportunities in the Middle East,” the company said.
