Eurosatory, the world's biggest land and air-land defense show, opens its doors to professional visitors in Paris tomorrow (Monday, June 16) but for many people the exhibition site to the north of the city has been their place of work for weeks. The day before the show opens, a lot of last minute finishing touches are being put to some stands while others are in a state such as one wonders whether they will ever be ready on time!
Here are a few photos to give you a feel for the atmosphere here on this Sunday afternoon:

An interesting take on uniforms!
Wouldn't have thought anyone was tall enough to look down the cannon...
The Chinese were already this advanced yesterday!
