The Paris Air Show starts Monday and aviation pundits have counted 16 aircraft making their debut at the big show, including the Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet. While Airbus and Boeing will again hog the spotlight at the Paris Air Show with their.

Boeing said Monday that its board of directors has given the green light to develop a new super-stretched version of its single-aisle 737 Max.

Boeing has maintained the pressure on Airbus, its main rival, with the launch of the biggest version yet of the 737 short-haul jet.

Lockheed Martin (LMT.N) is in the final stages of negotiating a $37 billion-plus deal to sell 440 F-35 fighter jets to a group of 11 nations including the United States, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The first customers to be announced were BOC Aviation, which has signed a memorandum of understanding with BOC Capital for 10 planes, and GE Capital, which has converted 20 orders.

Around 200,000 regular visitors are expected at the Paris Air Show this year, many of whom will come especially for spectacular displays of supersonic military hardware as fast combat planes break the sound barrier.

The salesman used his influence in pushing Airbus to upgrade the A320, allowing it to bring the model to market nearly 18 months before the revamped 737, turning the aircraft into the fastest-selling new model in commercial aviation history.

Thousands are expected at the biennial aviation and defense industry gathering this week.
