On 14 June 2003, the Paris Airshow opens its doors, and the ESA TV Service therefore features during the week before the largest aerospace gathering in the world, two programmes linking space and aviation.

This Programmes provides an account of the spring 2003 parabolic flights campaign, during which the European Airbus 300 flew dozens of parabolas each offering about 20 second of weightlessness. For many experiments, this is sufficent to gain scientifc data, and for everybody participating in the parabolc flights, to get an impression of being in space.

This Exchange comprises of a 5 minute A-roll with split audio (English commentary/international sound) and is complimented by a 8-minute B-Roll with clean international sound.
