The Farnborough International Air show is a week-long event that combines a major trade exhibition for the aerospace and defence industries with a public air show. The event is held in mid-July in even-numbered years at Farnborough Airport in Hampshire, United Kingdom. The first four days (Monday to Thursday) are dedicated exclusively to trade, with the final three days open to the public.
The air show is an important event in the international aerospace and defence industry calendar, providing an opportunity to demonstrate civilian and military aircraft to potential customers and investors. The show is also used for the announcement of new developments and orders, and to attract media coverage. It is one of the largest air shows, after France's Salon du Bourget.

Farnborough air show is attended by tens and thousands of visitors each day. Driving times from London can be around 2 hours with additional times required for waiting to park.
