Given the development time it takes for new military aircraft, it is rare to get a collection of new models showing up. But this year's Farnborough Airshow, unfolding next week, should be a nice change from that pattern, with several military aircraft that have not been seen there before.The biggest one will be the A400M, which appeared already at the Berlin air show, but is making its Farnborough debut.There's also the promise of the Pakistan Air Force bringing their newly fielded, Chinese-made JF-17 fighter.Saab will have the Gripen NG demonstrator on the static display (it will not, however, be fitted with the Raven 1000P AESA radar, which has been removed again).The F-22A will also be back to fly Monday and Tuesday, although it will be stationed at RAF Fairford. And then there is the usual air show aircraft: the Eurofighter Typhoon, the C-27J, the M-346 trainer, and F/A-18F Super Hornet just to name a few.And given it is also the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, plenty of historic military aircraft will also be around.To get in the mood for next week, check out some of the videos on our pre-Farnborough site.
