September 9, 2014 - Textron AirLand Plans First Fly-In to Washington, DC; To Display in Conjunction with the AFA’s Air & Space Conference and Technology Exposition

WICHITA, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Textron AirLand, LLC, a joint venture between Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) and AirLand Enterprises, LLC, will bring its Scorpion ISR/Strike jet to Washington, DC for the duration of the Air Force Association’s Air & Space Conference from September 15 to 17. The aircraft will be displayed at Signature Flight Support Terminal, at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), approximately 10 miles from the conference center.

This will be Scorpion’s first visit to the Nation’s Capital, and comes one year after its introduction at last year’s AFA Air & Space Conference. Scorpion team leaders will be on hand to discuss the affordability, performance and multi-mission versatility of the aircraft. The interactive exhibit will demonstrate the multi-mission flexibility of the Scorpion and feature a variety of multi-spectral sensor and high-definition video camera packages engineered for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. Several wing-mounted mock munitions will be shown, representing a typical array of air-to-surface and air-to-air weapons preferred by the US and partner nations.
