Made-In-Missouri Blue Angel Aircraft Cause Chicago to Look Up

During the recent Chicago Air Show, headlined by the Missouri-made Blue Angel F/A-18s, Missouri Partnership and the British Government co-hosted an event at the private residence of the United Kingdom (UK) Consul General. This 61st floor vantage point gave attendees a unique and up-close view of Missouri’s advanced manufacturing excellence.

Joining in the event were CEOs from companies currently in, or looking to expand into, Missouri, as well as site location advisors, economic development professionals from across Missouri, foreign government officials and former Blue Angel team members.

The event highlighted the Missouri-made aircraft, Missouri’s food and drink industry, and the long-standing special relationship between Missouri and the U.K.
