Model of the proposed Tupolev Tu-414 on display at Farnborough '94.
Defender 4000 prototype G-SURV made its debut appearance at Farnborough '94, albeit only on static display as it had only made its first flight two weeks before the show. It is seen with a Sea Skua anti-ship missile mounted on the port inboard underwing hardpoint.

Seen here during roll-out on June 23, 1994, from the Sogerma facility at Toulouse, this view gives a good impression of the size of the Super Transporter. Note the ‘underslung' cockpit to enable straight-in loading and redesigned tail unit with twin auxiliary fins.
The A300-600ST cargo door is the largest ever built for any aircraft, weighing some two tons. Built by Aerostructures at Hamble, UK, it enables loading/unloading in 45 minutes, compared to two to three hours for similar operations with the Super Guppy.
Still mostly finished only in primer, the first SATIC Airbus A300-600ST Super Transporter, F-WAST (c/n 655), takes to the air for the first time on September 13, 1994, at Toulouse.
Interior of the A300-600ST during construction - the workmen lend scale and emphasise the size of the cargo compartment which has a volume of 1,400m3, a diameter of 7.4m and usable length of 37.7m enabling carriage of loads up to 45.5 tonnes.
