    History of this Location


    Built by Hughes Helicopters and opened in 1982, it became part of McDonnell-Douglas around 1984, when the first AH-64A Apaches were produced. The Mesa plant transferred to Boeing when it acquired McDD Helicopters in 1997.
    As well as Apache production and re-manufacturing, by 2011 the Mesa plant was producing electrical wiring looms for the F-15. F/A-18 and C-17 programmes and its composite center was producing Apache main rotor blades and significant composites for Boeing A160T Hummingbird, F/A-18, E/A-18G Growler, P-8A and 787 Dreamliner.
