Two employees of the Japanese aircraft manufacturer Mitsubishi sit in a full-scale model of their MRJ at the Paris Air Show, Le Bourget France. Seated in different rows of this stylish small regional jet, they awkwardly stare expressionless, straight ahead and although the seats are real, the mock-up fuselage is in the middle of an exhibition hall. The MRJ is a next generation jetliner with 70 or 90 seat economy class configurations, the first regional jet to adopt composite materials for its wings and vertical fins on significant scale. The Paris Air Show expo is a commercial air show, organised by the French aerospace industry who demonstrate military and civilian aircraft to potential customers.  (image by Richard Baker)
