I have always been curious in what Boeing does in Melbourne, Australia?
If you take the western ring road into the city and cross the large bridge (cannot place the name) then you can see a large building on the left side with BOEING written on it.

Quoting 6thfreedom (Reply 5):
Are you referring to the hawker de havilland plant just after the west gate bridge?
Going back a few years it used to be the government aircraft factories where the built fighters in WWII. Then became privatised to become Aerospace Technologies of Australia (ASTA), then became Boeing. Hawker de Havilland was a little further down the road, I think they were doing more helicopter work in Melbourne, and aircraft work in Sydney. The big white shed that one sees from the bridge with Boeing written on it used to be ASTA, from memory that is the composite workshop where the 330/340 main gear doors, and 777 rudders were made.
No doubt they are doing work for the 380/787 there, I just have not need to visit for some time.
