Victorian defence excellence to be showcased as F-35 Joint Strike Fighter appears at Airshow

Leading Victorian defence manufacturers will showcase world class capabilities and products at the upcoming Australian International Airshow & Aerospace and Defence Exposition 2019. 

One of the highlights of the Airshow will be the appearance of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the world’s most advanced military aircraft, which has been manufactured with significant contributions from Victorian businesses, with 65 per cent of Australian content being sourced from Victorian defence suppliers. 

Marand is one of several Victorian companies supplying the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter project and has the largest value of work of any Australian supplier. The Moorabbin-based business is manufacturing the vertical tails and engine trailers for the fleet of F-35 aircraft.
