The Wing-Body combination complete for MRJ’s first flight test aircraft
The wings of the Mitsubishi Regional Jet’s (MRJ) first flight test aircraft have been mated with the fuselage at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ final-assembly factory. The wing-body combination marks another major milestone toward MRJ’s completion. Mitsubishi Aircraft took delivery of the pylon from Spirit AeroSystems and the PurePower PW1200G engine from Pratt & Whitney and will soon commence the engine-mounting process.
