Bombardier is pleased to celebrate its 40th year of operations in Tucson, Arizona. Occupying almost 1 million square feet of total hangar space, the Tucson Air Centre is the largest of Bombardier's nine Aircraft Service Centres and services both Bombardier commercial and business aircraft, and employs over 900 engineers, technicians and staff in the region. Since opening in 1976, the facility has been located at Tucson International Airport, a strategic location and a key local partner.

The aircraft has always intrigued aviation fans. But after a 2009 National Geographic Channel special aired, touting the Horten Ho 229 V3 flying wing's "stealthy" characteristics and claiming it was stored in "a secret government warehouse," Internet forums went wild.
The "secret" warehouse was simply the National Air and Space Museum's storage facility in Suitland, Maryland. The U.S. Army Air Forces had captured the flying wing prototype — along with hundreds of other German aircraft — near the end of World War II.
The next step in the development of the former Wright factory buildings — the world's first purpose-built airplane factory — is happening now.
