Congresswoman Hill gets inside looks at plant 42

Members of U.S. Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale, Calif., and the 412th Test Wing hosted Congresswoman Katie Hill for an informational tour Feb. 21.

The newly elected Hill was accompanied by members of her staff and representatives of Palmdale.

Before being driven around the sprawling facility, the congresswoman was given an overview of Air Force Plant 42’s mission and purpose by John Esch, Plant 42 director.

The plant is home to some NASA operations, large contractors such as Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin and Boeing, and employs about 9,000 people, making it one of the largest employers in the Antelope Valley.
