Boeing celebrates 787 in London

BOEING celebrated the first flight of the 787 Dreamliner and continued excellent progress of the aircraft with a reception for its suppliers and associates at the Royal Aeronautical Society headquarters last week.  The prestigious building, just by the Intercontinental in London’s Park Lane, offered a fine platform for UK President Sir Roger Bone to thank all the British companies involved in the project.  Introduced by Sir Roger a number of suppliers made presentations including Rolls-Royce, GKN Aerospace, Cranfield University, and perhaps most interesting of all Sheffield University’s AMRC (Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre), a partnership of companies and now a world leader in the aerospace supply chain.  www.amrc.co.uk  www.rolls-royce.com/civil  www.gknaerospace.com www.cranfield.ac.uk/aerospace
