Boeing 777 wing leading edge
manufactured by BAE SYSTEMS.

BAE SYSTEMS is a multinational defense products manufacturer.

It was formed on November 30, 1999 with the merger of British Aerospace and Marconi Electronic Systems, which was made up of several divisions of GEC-Marconi in the UK and overseas.

In June 2003, rumors started to circulate about a possible merger with either Boeing (who acquired BAE SYSTEMS's partner McDonnell Douglas in 1997) or Lockheed Martin. Later that year the company's Chief Executive denied any possibility of a North American merger on the grounds of "conflict of interest" pertaining to the affiliation with the Airbus consortium.
