A Russian aircraft engine manufacturer has been banned from using dancers to attract guests to its stand at the Farnborough International Air Show in southern England, a spokesman for the company said.
FARNBOROUGH, July 16 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian aircraft engine manufacturer has been banned from using dancers to attract guests to its stand at the Farnborough International Air Show in southern England, a spokesman for the company said.

Two Russian dancers strutted their stuff between presentations at the Klimov company stand, attracting dozens of onlookers and experts from other stands and - as the organizers of the air show claimed - disturbing the work of other exhibitors and making the area hard to pass through.

"It is a pity that the organizers banned our girls from performing. They introduced an element of novelty to the exhibition, and looked good performing against a backdrop of military and civil machinery," the spokesman said.

Klimov is a leading Russian developer of gas turbine engines.

The international air show runs July 14-20. The previous exhibition, in 2006, saw $42 billion in orders, with around 270,000 people attending the event.
