The 46th International Paris Air Show took place between June 13 and June 19, 2005. The event, which is considered the largest showcase of aerospace technology in the world, has been around since 1908. In 1951, on the eve of the Space Age, Paris Air Show moved to Le Bourget airport, where it was held biennially ever since. The USSR regularly used the event to advertise its aviation and space technology. In 1967, it was the site of the first public display of the Vostok rocket. In 1989, a giant Antonov-224 Mriya transport plane landed in Le Bourget, carrying the Buran reusable orbiter on its back. In 2005, Russia showed a scaled mockup of the Kliper reusable orbiter, which one day can replace venerable Soyuz spacecraft.
