The biennial Farnborough International Airshow opens in Hampshire, England today.

The first five days of the show is dedicated to exhibitors and buyers, and aimed at introducing new technology. And the long-anticipated Boeing 787 will be a star attraction.

Analysts say the airshow will boost the aerospace industry's prospects of recovery from the economic downturn. New orders for commercial aircraft are expected from strong emerging markets, while defense transactions are likely to be muted due to governments' spending cuts.
