Hello everyone, and thanks for checking out the August 20th issue of Aerotech News and Review! Our cover story features big news out of US Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale, with Lockheed Martin announcing completion of an advanced manufacturing facility at its Skunk Works headquarters. Skunk Works is responsible for many aerospace firsts, including the United States’ first jet fighter (P-80), the world’s first stealth fighter (F-117) and the world’s first 5th generation fighter (F-22). This project is the cornerstone of over $400 million in capital investments being made across Lockheed Martin’s Palmdale campus.
