Flightglobal International, May 8, 2015
This is the C919 airplane in the final stages of AIT’s final assembly line near Shanghai, China. These pictures show our cell 5 positioners in the foreground supporting the C919 airplane, as well as two passenger door access platforms near the nose and the large horizontal stabilizer/vertical stabilizer access platform surrounding the tail of the airplane. In the background, and extremely difficult to see in the pictures, are our cell 4 positioners and work platforms (directly behind cell 5), cell 3 positioners and work platforms (directly behind cell 4), and cell 1 work platforms (far left of pic 3). Other miscellaneous operator access stands and platforms are shown off to the side in the staging area (far left of pic 1).
