Now the centre of wing production for the entire range of Airbus commercial aircraft, the first factory at Broughton officially opened in September 1939 and has built a range of classic aircraft including the Wellington, Comet and the HS-125 business jet.
The exhibition will be at Gladstone’s Library, Hawarden from Monday, 23 February to Friday, 13 March and can be viewed seven days a week between the hours of 9am and 5pm. Entrance is free.
Annette Lewis, Development Manager at Gladstone’s Library said: “Gladstone’s Library is always happy to support local businesses and is delighted to support Airbus by being part of their celebrations to mark the 75th anniversary of the opening of its Broughton factory.”
Kath Hayes, Community Relations Manager at Airbus said: “This is such an exciting year for the Broughton Plant, celebrating this momentous 75th milestone, in addition to the many activities taking place for our employees we felt it was fitting to involve our community in this celebration, many of whom will remember the memories included in our photo exhibition”.
