I have been hearing about tours of the Boeing facilities in Washington lately and was wondering about tours of the McDonnel Douglas facility in Long Beach, California. =========================================================== I am new to using the net so excuse me if this appeared already. McD do tours - but it depends who you are, what you are, where you are from, which day they are replying on etc... I have been around the factory 4 times, the first two times I applied to the public affairs office. Being a 'Brit' (and a spotter - but thats another story) makes it much easier. If you work for a McD customer then it is very easy (my last 2 times were with a customer) to get tours, a friend of mine works for an airline and gets around every 3 months. Going around the perimeter, up and down all the side roads gives you a good feel for whats going on and plenty can be seen - I've taken a large number of photos at the end of the runway. Try to avoid the C17 plant though - they get a bit touchy around there. Good luck - and let us know how you got on. ..Anthony Firmin (the mad British spotter).
