Final assembly of the first MRJ flight test aircraft is underway. Work on the aircraft, which is under development by Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), has started at the Komaki South Plant of MHI’s Nagoya Aerospace Systems Works located in Aichi Prefecture. The transfer of the aircraft’s mid fuselage, fabricated at the Tobishima Plant also in Aichi Prefecture, marks the beginning of final assembly, which will progressively advance as other sections of the fuselage, main wings and other structural components arrive. After this, electrical wiring, hydraulic and other systems will be installed, followed by other necessary equipment.
