Today, 17 June, saw the opening of the week-long International Paris Air Show.

An important event for the aerospace and defence industry, the show is held at Le Bourget on the outskirts of Paris. As the BBC reports, almost 2,500 companies are to exhibit, attracting an estimated 320,000 visitors over the course of the week.

We took a look at the agenda and selected some events for those hoping to make the most of the fair.
