Plant 42 Tour
Last week my staff and I took a tour of Plant 42 in Palmdale to get an update on aerospace design and manufacturing in the Antelope Valley. We met with officials from Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, NASA, and Edwards Air Force Base to discuss their operations there and the future of aerospace in California.
