Lockheed Martin's Meridian facility began production operations in August 1969, initially producing the L-1011 jet airliner's empennage
. Since then, the Meridian facility has been involved in the production of aircraft components for the JetStar, the C-5 Galaxy and C-141 Starlifter strategic airlifters, the P-3 Orion submarine hunter, the F-22 Raptor fighter jet, and the C-130J Super Hercules tactical airlifter.
Al Mulla's experience advanced further when she joined the team working on the assembly of the Boeing B777 Empennage
Ribs structural members that help improve an aircraft's stability during flights.
- What are some of the most promising, high-growth opportunities for composites in the global composite surface film market by end use type (aerospace & defense, automotive, others) application (fuselage, wings, empennage
, other aerospace components, automotive body panels, and others), function type (surface preparation and protection films, and surface films with LSP), and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World)
Today, Strata is responsible for manufacturing Boeing 777 empennage
ribs and Boeing 787 vertical fin ribs, in addition to manufacturing composite empennage
ribs for Boeing's new 777X aircraft.
Summary: Hyderabad (Telangana) [India] Feb 20 (ANI): Tata Lockheed Martin Aerostructures Limited (TLMAL) recently delivered the 100th C-130J Super Hercules empennage
from its manufacturing facility located in Hyderabad, India.The delivery milestone highlights the ongoing success of Lockheed MartinaACAOs hallmark Make in India partnership with Tata.
Strata currently manufactures ribs for the empennage
of the 777 and vertical fin ribs for the 787 Dreamliner.
The deal is to manufacture composite empennage
ribs for Boeing's new 777X airplane, Strata said in a statement.
Strata Manufacturing (Strata), the advanced composite aero structures manufacturing company wholly owned by Mubadala Investment Company, has signed a deal with Boeing to manufacture composite empennage
ribs for Boeing's new 777X airplane.
I had no idea that a Fairchild PT-19 open-cockpit trainer was modified with a 1/4-scale B-29 wing and empennage
to validate those designs.
section separated from the airframe and came to rest forward of the wings in an inverted position.
On final, the airspeed was a little fast and during the landing, he flared the airplane "a little high." After touchdown, the pilot applied the brakes, but the airplane did not respond, so he applied "a little more brake." The airplane nosed over and came to rest inverted, sustaining substantial damage to both wings and the empennage
. The pilot reported he should have performed a go-around instead of attempting to "salvage the landing."
