The President of Boeing UK and Ireland, Sir Michael Arthur, took the opportunity of his first visit to the AMRC's Advanced Manufacturing Centre to present a model of the Boeing 777X twin-aisle aeroplane.

The presentation was in recognition of the research partnership between Boeing and the AMRC, now extending to technologies applied to this new aircraft, which will be the largest, most advanced and efficient twin-engine jet in the world.

Sir Michael is pictured presenting the model of the 777X to AMRC executive dean, Professor Keith Ridgway CBE.
