The ILIS 1936 (Swedish: Internationella Luftfartsutställningen i Stockholm) was an international aviation exhibition held in the Swedish capital Stockholm. It was the first specialised exhibition recognised by the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE).[1]. The exposition was held to celebrate the opening of Bromma airport, Europe's first with paved runways. Bromma was inaugurated on 23 May 1936, with the finish of an air race 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 flying boat facility just east of the city centre, currently used as ferry terminal. During the ILIS, visitors to Lindarängen could board a Swedish flying boat to fly over Stockholm.
