Boeing Opens Composite Wing Center
Boeing recently celebrated the grand opening of its new 777X Composite Wing Center (CWC) in Everett, Wash. The facility will manufacture the world's largest composite wings for the 777X, the company's newest commercial jetliner. Boeing has invested more than $1 billion in the Everett site for construction and outfitting of the new building, which will contain three of the world's largest autoclaves – each big enough to fit two Boeing 737 fuselages inside. Production of the 777X is scheduled to begin in 2017, with first delivery targeted in 2020.
