The 52nd Paris Air Show kicked off this week, displaying all manner of aircraft, from small drones to hulking passenger jets.

The event runs until June 25, but the F-35A Lightning II, which many considered to be the marquee piece of hardware on hand, has already put on an air demonstration.

Aside from the F-35, the US showed off an F-16 Fighting Falcon, a CH-47 Chinook, an AH-64 Apache, a P-8 Poseidon, a C-130J Super Hercules, and a CV-22 Osprey.

They have been joined in the air over the French capital by Airbus’ latest offering, China’s sophisticated drone technology, and the striking design of Brazil’s Embraer E195-E2 prototype.
