737 Airplane Spoilers - Built in Monrovia

Did you know airplanes have spoilers? Did you know they are manufactured right here in Monrovia, and Ducommun Inc. will be making the spoilers for the Boeing 737? http://goo.gl/IK30C

  1. A "spoiler" is a flight control surface, located on the tops of the aircraft's wings. They "spoil" the airflow across the wing, forcing it in a downward position. This is how a large aircraft banks into a turn.
