Boeing's C-17 plant covers over 1.1 million square feet. Attendees will see how the fuselage and wing sections are joined together using laser tooling. They will also walk inside the wing half-join tool to see how the wing sections fit together before they are joined to the main fuse-lage. At the final stop, attendees will walk up the cargo ramp of a finished C-17. While there, the aircraft's cargo loading and off-loading capabilities will be demonstrated.
