Boeing comes to oz


Boeing has chosen Toowoomba in Qld to be the first aircraft assembly site to operate outside of North America.

While the primary aim of the new factory will be to manufactur­e Boeing’s first military jet, referred to as Loyal Wingman, the company’s Australia Vice President and Managing Director, Scott Carpendale, said that the longterm opportunit­ies could lead to additional commercial aerospace opportunit­ies.

Toowoomba’s Wellcamp Aerospace and Defence Precinct location was chosen due to its access to a flight line, clear flying days, and commercial flight access from major cities.
