The ILIS 1936 (Swedish: Internationella Luftfartsutställningen i Stockholm) was an international aviation exhibition held in the Swedish Captital Stockholm. It was the first specialized exposition recognized by the Bureau of International Expositions.[1] The exposition was held to celebrate the opening of Bromma airport, Europe's first with paved runways. Bromma has been inaugurated on 23 May 1936, with the finish of an airrace across Sweden that started the day before. At Bromma some airshows took place on 24 and 25 May 1936.[2] The indoor and static exhibition was held at Lindarängen[3][4] a flyingboat facility just east of the city centre, currently used as ferryterminal. During the ILIS visitors to Lindarängen could board a Swedish flyingboat to fly over Stockholm.
