 GKN Aerospace has delivered the first integrated canopy to the U.S. Air Force for the Boeing F-15C fighter, the company announced. The delivery occurred six months ahead of schedule, GKN officials said, pointing out that the program has involved the management of a supplier network of more than 20 companies responsible for the manufacture of 350 detailed parts. GKN’s purchase of Pilkington Aerospace last year allowed it not only to compete for the F-15C contract but to seek a position in the market as the only supplier of complete integrated canopy systems, the company said.  ͖
