  • Boeing Australia - History
    Hawker de Havilland by The Boeing Company it was merged with the already owned AeroSpace Technologies of Australia In 2009 Hawker de Havilland changed its name to Boeing Aerostructures Australia to better reflect its business as a major exporter of components to Boeing Airbus Lockheed Martin Bombardier and other airplane manufacturers In 1936 the Douglas Aircraft Company sold its first DC 2 to Australia followed soon after by the DC 3 of World War II fame In that same year the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation CAC was established by three Australian companies to build the country s first mass produced aircraft The aircraft chosen was the North American Aviation NA 16 general purpose trainer A total of 755 of these aircraft were produced in Australia between 1939 and 1946 under a license agreement with North American The agreement which allowed the CAC to modify the design to meet the RAAF s unique requirements led to the establishment of the local aircraft industry The Australian manufactured aircraft was given the Aboriginal name Wirraway which means challenge and was used by the RAAF in a wide variety of operational roles such as tactical reconnaissance target marking supply dropping dive bombing army support and on occasions as an interceptor fighter In 1937 the Department of Aircraft Production established its own factory to build fighter and bomber aircraft alongside CAC sharing the runway at Fishermans Bend Melbourne This facility became known as the Government Aircraft Factories and later as AeroSpace Technologies of Australia ASTA The heritage Boeing McDonnell Douglas and North American Aviation companies provided technology know how and military aircraft to Australia during World War II including the highly successful DC 3 the Dolphin the Boston the B 25 Mitchell bomber and the Australian produced P 51 Mustang Two hundred Mustang aircraft were built in Australia between 1945 and 1951 and a further 299 imported from North American Aviation The Douglas DC 4 entered service in Australia in 1947 and the Boeing B 29 acquired from the Royal Air Force was operated at Woomera in 1952 During the Korean War Australia needed a new frontline fighter aircraft and the RAAF selected the North American Aviation F 86 Sabre powered by a Rolls Royce engine Australia built 112 Sabres under license to North American Aviation between 1954 and 1961 The Second 30 Years Development of Strategically Important Capabilities The Australian flag carrier Qantas was the first international customer for the first jet commercial airplane built by Boeing the 707 The Boeing 707 was introduced into Australia in 1959 to meet the Qantas requirement on its long haul routes across the Pacific Ocean and the Kangaroo route to London This very first Qantas 707 was recently returned to Australia with considerable assistance from Boeing for permanent display at the Qantas Founders Museum at Longreach Queensland In 1960 the Collins Radio Company established its presence in Australia with an investment in the manufacture of communications equipment for the Australian Defence Force This company which became Rockwell Electronics
