Nah. I am going on Friday. Will see what real cool things are to be developped, like the electrical wing of the A320 neo, and the new spoilers for the A350, spoiler: (see what I did there?) It might be a Belgian company producing those.

Will also be visiting Thales, Rolls Royce, Honeywell and GE

And of course: The Ariane 6 and Vega C mock ups. Am quite excited for these as well.
