An Electric Day at the 2019 Paris Air Show

The 2019 Paris Air Show continued today, and with it came several notable updates from the aerospace community.

Perhaps most significant was the purchase of 200 Boeing 737 Max planes by International Airlines Group. The sale is the first for the Boeing airliners since the model was grounded for safety earlier this year.

The cover photo and below photo were taken by Andres Lopez, Engineering Manager at General Electric Renewable Energy.

Also gaining the interest of the aviation industry was the unveiling of an all-electric airliner by Israel-based Eviation. According to company CEO Omer Bar-Yohay, the plane is designed to meet an increasing demand for shorter-commute travelers.

The show had much more on display than those two models, including aircraft designed for defense and military use.

The photos immediately above and below were taken by Robert Bustos Jr, Outside Sales Manager at Fastener Dimensions. Inc. They depict two aircraft designed by Turkish Aerospace.
