21st April 2020 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing restarted ‘essential’ production at its Ridley Township facilities near Philadelphia on 20 April after being closed since 3 April.

The CH-47D Chinook, V-22 Osprey (pictured) and MH-139A Grey Wolf military aircraft are all produced at the sites.

The company has reiterated its commitment to the health and safety of its employees and has taken a number of steps to reduce the risk of infection from coronavirus.

These include the provision of hand sanitizer stations, reinforced social distancing practices and virtual meetings, personal mask use and temperature screening using no-touch thermal scanners.

Production at its commercial manufacturing plant in Puget Sound also recommenced on 16 April after a shutdown period related to the pandemic.
