Here's some of the hardware on display at this year's Paris Air Show

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.

You can see some of the technology showcased at the show so far below.
