Where Are All The Final Assembly Plants?

Hi,

I am wondering where all the final assembly plants are located (or were located in the past). So both current aircraft and aircraft that are no longer in production. I already have some ideas for most aircraft, but want confirmation. So I will leave most aircraft types for you. Feel free to add other types.

I know that the Boeing 717, MD80/90, DC9, DC10, MD11 were all Long Beach California. I believe the L1011 was Palmdale, California.

Out of production now but, IIRC, the 707 was in Renton as well as the 727. The B717/M95 was in Long Beach, Calif.

The first 271 737s were built at Boeing Field, not Renton.

Not all MD-80s and MD-90s were built in Long Beach. 30 MD-82s, 5 MD-83s, and 2 MD-90s were built in China (Shanghai).

As far as I know, only the CRJ-700/900/1000 is built at Mirabel. The CRJ-100.200 was built at Montreal/Trudeau (YUL).

Correct. I was referring to the currently available models, so my oversight.

The Challenger family is also built at Montreal/Trudeau, the Learjets in Wichita and the CL415 waterbombers in North Bay, Ontario.

Correct. They were to become the Jetstream 61. They announced the move to Prestwick  Smile shortly before they announced that they were pulling out of civil aircraft production.  Sad

Although I didn't think they were "Avros" until after BAe production ceased at Hatfield.

A a few types that aren't on your list:

Bristol Britannia - 70 at Filton, 15 at Belfast (built under contract by Shorts)

Vickers Viscount - first 2 prototypes at Wisley. Production aircraft at both Hurn and Weybridge.
(For the prototypes built at Wisley, it must be the only time a 4-engine turbine airliner has made its first flight from a grass runway).

Vickers Vanguard - Weybridge

Vickers VC-10 - Weybridge

De Havilland Comet - Hatfield

Hawker-Siddeley Trident - Hatfield

Hawker-Siddeley 748 - Woodford. Many also built under license by Hindustan Aeronautics in Kanpur, India.

Convair 240/340/440/880/990 - San Diego

Canadair DC-4M North Star (called Argonaut by BOAC), license-built and modified Douglas DC-4 with R-R Merlin engines, and Canadair CL-44 (based on Bristol Britannia with longer fuselage and R-R Tyne engines) - both built at Montreal Cartierville (which no longer exists -- where thousands of military aircraft were also built).

Lockheed also built the C5's in Marietta (and is rebuilding the C-5Ms there), builds the F-22's there, and as noted all variants of the C-130 came from there too.

128 F-27s were also license-built by Fairchild at HGR (Hagerstown, Maryland). In fact the first F27/F-27 to go into service was a Fairchild-built F-27 with Seattle-based West Coast Airlines in September 1958, about 3 months before the first Fokker-built F27 went into service with Aer Lingus.

Fairchild also independently developed the stretched FH-227 of which 78 were built.

The DC-3 and DC-4, owing to their importance in WWII, were produced in three factories: Long Beach, Santa Monica (both in California) and Oklahoma City, OK. The DC-6, on the other hand, was only produced at Long Beach, as it just missed service in the war. Also, the all models of the DC-7 were produced at Long Beach.
