Farnborough Air Show is big, global business. But what does it mean to the local economy?
Divya Kohli has spent time with a range of local businesses to see how the Air Show makes an impact.
Flying has been suspended at Farnborough following a massive storm. Organisers say it is in the interests of safety. Power at all locations is being turned off and parts of the exhibition halls are being evacuated.
The biggest airshow in the world has opened with a multi-billion pound order for new planes form Crawley based Virgin Atlantic. Prime Minister David Cameron officially opened the show. Sir Richard Branson has placed a massive order for 2 Airbus A350's worth around $4.3billion.
Thousands of people are expected to attend this year's Farnborough Airshow today. Among them will be Prime Minister David Cameron.
It is also thought Sir Richard Branson will be at the show to order 12 multi- million pound environmentally friendly airbuses.
The event which is held every other year will see dozens of exhibits and demonstrations. The Red Arrows are set to perform, without aerobatics amid safety fears following the Shoreham Airshow Disaster.
Firefighters in Hampshire have become the first in the country to wear body cameras.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue say footage will be used to help investigations and officers evaluate their performance. The cameras were first trialled during May - including at this blaze at a firework shop in Southampton.
Having spent 186 days in orbit, Major Tim Peake is due to return to Earth. The Sussex astronaut is scheduled to exit the International Space Station tomorrow to land in Kazakhstan. He will see his family for the first time in six months.
The organisers of the Farnborough airshow have announced that the Red Arrows will NOT perform acrobatics when they appear at the event in July.
The new restrictions have come in after the Shoreham airshow crash last summer. The Farnbrough airshow takes place over a densely populated area.
