Boeing to build £100M facility at RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland

WCN Editorial Team 13 Jul 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

US-based aircraft manufacturing firm Boeing is set to construct a new £100M facility at RAF Lossiemouth in Moray, Scotland, UK.


The new location will be the home to the new fleet of nine P-8A Poseidon military aircraft ordered by the UK government in 2015.

Apart from the construction of the new base, Boeing is selling nine Boeing P-8 Poseidon aircraft, which will operate from the Moray airbase alongside the RAF's squadrons of Typhoon and Tornado jets.

Former UK prime minister David Cameron said: “Whatever uncertainties our country faces, I want the message to go out loud and clear: the UK will continue to lead the world in both civil and defence aerospace.

“We aren’t just open for investment: we are a place the global aerospace industry wants to do business – as Boeing’s long-term partnership with the UK proves.”

The project is expected to create more than 100 new jobs in the region.
