About is a site by Zijde Aviation Photo and Publishing.


The Paris Air Show at Paris-Le Bourget Airport is probably the most exciting Trade show to visit every other year to find and see the latest developments in aviation.

We, the people behind Zijde Aviation Photo and Publishing (as this is our full name) started visiting the Paris air show in 1985. That means that this year, Paris Air Show 2017 will be our 17th visit to this grand show that hosts all the great manufacturers of all that has anything to do with aviation, reason enough we thought to display some of the photo’s we took over the last 17 shows (33 years).

We started in 1985, 32 years younger, we took off to Le Bourget to see the Paris Air Show for the first time. As you will see our photo-equipment was a bit cheaper, but we were very enthusiastic. Never the less, we hope the reader will understand that the quality of the photo’s is getting better within the years, just like most people we got better thru the years…

some of our other sites are: – world wide aviation industries news – fact-sheets of military and civil aircraft, airshows, base visits, international airports and more – complete overview of all aviation museums world wide
