Made In Missouri: Boeing’s F/A-18 & EA-18 Aircraft Ready To Meet Future Challenges

Boeing’s Defense, Space & Security division has a very challenging job: to produce fighter jets that meet both the current and future needs of the U.S. military. This job falls on the men and women working at Boeing’s manufacturing facility in St. Louis, Missouri.

CNBC’s Morgan Brennan took a look inside Boeing’s Missouri production facility, at the F/A-18 Super Hornets and EA-18 Growlers assembled there.

Missouri has a rich history in aerospace, from Charles Lindbergh, to the Mercury space program, to the latest in aerospace innovation. Today, that cutting edge innovation continues with 100 aerospace manufacturing companies across Missouri, including Boeing, leading the way in every aspect of military aviation.
