11:35 pm
the region, and with tensions in the south china sea offering a rather unfortunate and unpredictable backdrop, it has to be said. i want you to talk to us about how airlines are being affected by these falling oil prices. >> reporter: well, falling oil prices are generally excellent for an airline. it is their biggest single cost, the price of jet fuel, around 30% historically. some people i've been talking to say that with this fall from $100 a barrel to $20, $30 a barrel, it's now 20% of their cost. so a lot of airlines are very happy to see that. the other side of this is that airlines are not retiring the older gas guzzling models and buying new ones because those gas guzzlers are now more efficient. that's not impacting the broader sales, and i've been speaking to the head of airbus. he says that the industry is still very strong despite all the other economic turmoil, the low oil prices, things are looking pretty good.
11:36 pm
in fact airbus announced today that philippine airlines is going to be buying six of these a 350. this is the brand spanking new aircraft from airbus, very distinctive wing you can see there, which really does sort of identify what this plane is. but airbus generally says that conditions are very good. that's been echoed by other -- the big plane makers here. no deferrals of orders, no cancelations of orders. there are thousands, literally thousands of orders for asian airlines over the next few years. >> andrew, you have also been chatting with several defense contractors. how big is defense at this air show you're at? >> reporter: well, that's interesting. let me take you through a little whauk here. i've showed you the commercial site of this, but you're right. this is a very big aerospace and defense show as well. you can see the singapore air force over here allowing some members of the public to get a taste of what it's like to be on

11:38 pm
a lot of drones. but there's also manned aircraft as well. so that's definitely playing out here in singapore. >> interesting. andrew stevens reporting there live from the singapore air show. many thanks. next here on "cnn newsroom," their last concert in paris ended in tragedy when terrorists stormed the theater. now this american band returns for an emotional and triumphant show. do stay with us. the internet of things. what we're recommending as your consultants... the new consultants are here. it's not just big data, its bigger data. we're beta testing the new wearable interface... ♪ xerox believes finding the right solution shouldn't be so much work. by engineering a better way for people, process and technology to work together. work can work better. with xerox.

11:42 pm
story we've seen over the last several years really encrease as far as the number of sharp sights. we know patterns take them down across the temperate climates, but these images taken on tuesday. just a large number of sharks, school of sharks -- did you also know they're called a shiver of sharks. there's a paddle boarder, unsuspecting and unaware of what's happening around him. you take a look at the number of sharks and how the water patterns and the normal patterns of migration actually take them to the north, as far north as coastal carolina. we've seen the water temperatures increasing because of el nino, because of climate change, and the observations have taken us as far north as coastal portions of new york state. what are the causes? we know increased water salinity. a lot of drought going on globally speaking. that increases water salinity in parts of the ocean. when that happens, that can displace sharks in their patterns of migration, and
11:43 pm
decreased food supply. over fishing potentially bringing them closer to land, putting them in contact with people. shark attacks in particular, 2015 an impressive year in particular in the united states alone. we had reports of 59 unprovoked shark attacks. 30 of which came right out of the state of florida. of course, you look at a global perspective of all this, and you look at the second largest shark attacks in the world, that came out of australia. that came with 18 shark attacks in 2015. look at south africa, they picked up about eight shark attacks in that calendar year. that was historic numbers in particular. when you look at the numbers of shark attacks and how it plays out over the past ten years, it brings the numbers somewhere around 35 or so. we had an anomalous year 2007 with 50. the last four years shark attack numbers have been significantly on the increase. you can play this one way by looking at how the water patterns and the warmth of the

11:45 pm
at the stadium of france during the time of those attacks. thank you for joining us. simon, this is very much a healing process for so many people there in paris. of course, the band helping in that process. talk to us. you were there at that soccer match during the course of those dreadful attacks. what are your memories, and now how are things three months on? >> well, what i remember is 20 minutes into the soccer match, there was a loud blast from outside the stadium. people cheered and clapped thinking it was fireworks, smoke bomb. two minutes later, the ground shook. later we realized these were attempts by multiple suicide bombers to get into the stadium. i then went onto the internet, began looking for news, and soon realized that paris was really at war. you know, it was a night that we won't forget. the bataclan concert was
11:46 pm
something that will live in memory here for decades. and last night's concert by the eagles of death metal is a tiny, tiny step in the healing process, which is not easy, and isn't imminent, and there is still behind the facade of paris, there is still a lot of fear. >> and it was just as all of that tragedy was unfolding, it was just horrifying and still is for so many people. you know, as we reported, there are psychologists on hand if the whole situation just got too overwhelming for people. when you walk down the streets in paris, how do people digest all of this? we think it's only three months. that is no time at all. is there that constant fear of the possibility of this happening again? >> there is this constant fear, but now it's more subliminal. at the beginning, cafes were empty, cinemas were empty. nobody went out. that lasted a couple of weeks.
11:47 pm
gradually people began to go out, and you see them in a cafe and you look for an exit. you think if somebody came in with a gun, where would i go. gradually that wears off. this fear is not entire irrationa irration irrational. there will be more attacks. so we live in the realization that this is a target, and that raises everyday issues. for example, are the schools safe? are your children safe at school? and these are things that just over a year ago, before the attacks last january, nobody here thought about. we thought we lived in a safe and prosperous wlern city where the violence of history was behind us, and we were wrong. >> simon cooper, thank you so much for sharing your personal experience here. of course, what is happening there in paris as people try to move forward. of course just horrifying memories for so many people, but so resilient at the same time.
