An Israeli Boeing 747 is seen here, on the cover of the Apr. 14, 2008 issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology, undergoing heavy maintenance. The aircraft is so big it nearly fills an Ameco Beijing paint hangar, which was being used for such visits due to limitations on facility capacity.

We wrote in this issue that Ameco Beijing had since opened a new major hangar large enough to accommodate four Airbus A380s. Many MRO providers are expanding to their capacity to capture work increasingly outsourced by the world's airlines. 

If you're a subscriber, you can see the cover of the Apr. 14, 2008 issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology which has a four page MRO section from page 70. 

On page 70 read a feature about the aftermarket. Companies are spreading wings by partnering, joint ventures and acquisitions. 

Read about anticipated U.S. airline capacity cuts are unlikely to bring curtailed MRO spending on page 72. And on page 74, learn more about outsourcing in 2008.
