Innovation is key at the Farnborough Air Show in Hampshire, England. A week long international trade fair for the aerospace industry, where the technology of tomorrow is on show for all to see and where you get to glimpse of projects which, in a few short years, will become a reality.

Taking gadgets to a new level, the European manufacturer Airbus introduced the iPad to its cockpit. The touch screen device used by millions on a daily basis can now be operated by pilots to carry out numerous performance calculations, even including the configuration of an aircraft’s take-off.

Farnborough dedicated a special stand to innovation, where a number of projects from European universities are on display. Cardiff University exhibited its programme which identifies in real time, any damage caused to the structure of a plane.

Promoting space tourism, Virgin unveiled a full-scale model of its Galactic SpaceShipTwo. Once it is operational, the price for a ticket into space will be 163,000 euros.
