From 15 to 18 June, only trade visitors with valid proof of their profession will be allowed entry into the business event. The show will be thrown open to the public from 19 to 21 June between 8.30am to 6pm.

The organisers have announced that for the 2015 Paris Air Show, a large 30,000sqm lawn area will be opened to the general public next to the runway, so they can get closer to the flying displays. The entry to the Air and Space Museum will be free for all visitors.

Visitors can also watch the flying displays up close, from spectacular angles through live display screens that will be set up at different locations across the venue. Live streaming for the event will be available on the official YouTube channel of the Paris International Air Show.

Live updates, latest pictures and videos from the air show will also be posted on the official Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages. Others can also access Paris Air Show Live Facebook page for the latest updates from Le Bourget.

Hailed as the world's oldest airshow, it was held barely five years after the Wright Brothers' famous flight off Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. According to CNBC, the event will bring together 3,00,000 trade and general visitors in one week. 

Those who cannot make it to the event physically, there are several live streaming channels such as Ustream and Original.livestream that will be broadcasting the show live.

Others can also witness the roaring jets in the sky at the Paris Air Show via live video broadcasts screened by Flightglobal and Airbus Defence and Space.

CNN has announced that on 15 June at 3pm GMT its aviation expert Thom Patterson will be holding live discussions with Solar Impulse pilot Bertrand Piccard, Director of Hybrid Air Vehicles Chris Daniels,  Editor-in-Chief of Aerospace magazine Tim Robinson and Brett Snyder aka The Cranky Flier.
