Lockheed Martin: F-16 parts made in Poland
(CercleFinance.com) - Lockheed Martin has announced that its company, PZL Mielec, one of the world's oldest Polish aircraft manufacturers, will build and assemble components for the latest generation of F-16 aircraft, starting next year.
PZL Mielec will manufacture the rear fuselage, center fuselage, cockpit structure, cockpit side panel and forward equipment bay for the new F-16s and will export these "aerostructures" to Lockheed Martin's final assembly line in Greenville, South Carolina.
Poland's acquisition of the F-35 has opened the door for further expansion of our commercial relations and has led us to today's announcement, the group said.
