CONCORD, N.H. — Nine companies from New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine have taken part in the Farnborough International Airshow in England, a big trade event for the aerospace and defense industries.

Corfin Industries of Salem, EPTAM Plastics of Northfield and Keipura Aviation Corp. of Littleton were part of the Best of New England booth.

Vermont companies at the show included Liquid Measurement Systems of Georgia; Mansfield Heliflight of Milton; MicroStrain of Williston; Concepts NREC of White River Junction; and Mobile Medical of St. Johnsbury. Tex Tech Industries of Portland, Maine, also attended.

The show is held in even-numbered years and is the sister event to the Paris Airshow. At this year’s show, which ended Thursday, British tycoon Richard Branson of the Virgin Galactic empire announced he and his two children will make a journey next year aboard the SpaceshipTwo.

Some 120 other tourists have signed up for the $200,000 two-hour trips into space over the coming years.
