Flightglobal and FLIR Systems will be broadcasting live from the heart of the 2011 Paris Air Show. The live broadcast will start at 12 p.m., Monday-Thursday, starting June 20.
The program for each day will include a behind-the-scenes look at the all-digital FLIR Systems Star SAFIRE HD sensor powering the video images of the aircraft, highlights of the previous day’s flying and full coverage of the aerial displays, according to company officials. The Star SAFIRE HD sensor, more frequently seen at work in a surveillance capacity on helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, will be mast-mounted at the Flightglobal Media Chalet at the end of the air show runway.
The live stream will be available on Flightglobal’s air show channel – flightglobal.com/Paris – and visitors with their own non-commercial blogs and web pages are welcome to grab the embedded code to share with their friends.
Michael Targett, Online and Digital Development Editor at Flightglobal, says: “Building on the popularity of our Farnborough Air Show broadcasts, we’re planning a bigger and better experience for Paris allowing everyone to see the air show in a way that has never been done before. Viewers will be treated to incredible infrared images of over 40 aircraft, including the aerobatic Sukhoi Su30, solar-powered experimental aircraft Solar Impulse, and hopefully a brace of new Boeing airliners – the 787 and 747-8.”
