A Look Back: Missouri-Made Aircraft Took To The Skies Of England

All month long Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at 31 of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year. Today we take a look back at England’s Farnborough International Airshow and the Missouri-made jet that stole the show.

On July 21, Missouri-made F/A-18 Super Hornet danced across the skies above the 2016 Farnborough International Airshow showing off Missouri’s advanced manufacturing excellence.

In addition to the F/A-18, both the EA-18 Growler and the F-15 Strike Eagle fighter jets are made in Missouri, along with a vast array of military ordinance.
