In the sky and on the ground, Boeing’s presence at the upcoming Farnborough Airshow near London will be unmatched, according to company officials.

Flying displays during the weeklong show, beginning July 11, will include the 737 MAX, making its international airshow debut, and an ANA 787-9, the first Dreamliner in a Japanese airline livery to take part in the air show. A new CargoLogicAir 747-8 Freighter will join those airplanes on static display.

The multi-mission P-8A, a military derivative of the Next-Generation 737-800, and an F/A-18F Super Hornet fighter will also perform flying displays.

Highlighting the company’s 100-year anniversary, the Boeing Centennial Experience, a pavilion filled with interactive exhibits, will showcase its past, present and future technologies to inspire new generations to explore engineering and aerospace.

With tens of thousands of visitors expected, the show is an opportunity for Boeing to highlight its leadership in aerospace innovation aimed at driving customer success, company officials said. Boeing’s packed agenda includes meetings with customers, suppliers, and community and government representatives, as well as media briefings and order announcements.
