Home of Firsts

It was in 1948 that The Society of British Aircraft Constructors (SBAC) chose Farnborough as its new home for its growing airshow. The first event took place between September 7 and 12, 1948 which featured 66 different British aircraft, including the launch of the Cierva W.II Air Horse, across the static and flying display.

Since its launch, Farnborough has been the home of historic firsts for the aerospace industry, including the launch of the world’s first jet airliner de Havilland DH.106 Comet 1 in 1949, The Black Arrows’ record-breaking 22-aircraft formation loop in 1958, BAC-Aerospatiale Concorde’s triumphant Farnborough debut in 1970 with a low fly pass over spectators and the Airbus A380 debut in 2006.

For the last 75 years, the Farnborough International Airshow has been a catalyst for the evolution of the aerospace industry and is the global platform for showcasing technological breakthroughs and feats of engineering.
