Mitsubishi Aircraft has completed the wing-body join of the first MRJ regional jet test aircraft.

The mating of the wings with the aircraft’s fuselage took place at the company’s Nagoya Aerospace Works factory, says Mitsubishi in a statement.

“The wing-body combination marks another major milestone toward MRJ’s completion,” it says.

Following the successful wing join, Mitsubishi will attach an engine pylon from Sprit AeroSystems, and subsequently mount the Pratt & Whitney PW1200G engine it received recently.
