A US manufacturer of parts for Boeing’s 777X aircraft says it has found that many of the parts for the aircraft’s wings, tail, and engines look very similar to those for British aircraft parts.
In a recent interview with Business Insider, Boeing’s executive vice president of manufacturing, Kevin Murphy, said parts for American aircraft engines, propellers, and wing are being made in the UK but the US parts are being produced in the US.
He also said there are similarities between parts for British and American aircrafts engines and wings.
“The similarities are not only that they’re made in very similar ways, they’re also being used in very different ways.
So, while we don’t want to create any false equivalences, we are trying to highlight some of the similarities,” he added.”
And in many cases the differences are not even noticeable to the naked eye.”

In his own statement, Murphy said the UK made “some of the most advanced and expensive aircraft parts ever created”.
He said that Boeing’s “high-tech manufacturing processes” in the United Kingdom allowed it to produce “very high-quality aircraft parts”.
Boeing is one of the world’s largest aircraft manufacturing companies and the aircraft parts used in aircrafts are among the world´s most advanced.
The company is also one of many US companies producing parts for several of the Boeing 777X’s major US customers, including the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Japan.
However, many parts used on the aircrafts, such as the wing, are manufactured in the European Union, where the EU has stricter standards on aircraft parts than the US does.
Boeis own aircraft parts are not the only items made in Britain.
Other parts that are made in British factories include the wing for the 737, the tail for the 777X, the landing gear for the 747, and the engine for the Airbus A380.
Boeys aircraft parts were made in many countries in the former USSR.
