More than 4,500 employees currently work at the site, supporting work on the C-130J Super Hercules final assembly and the F-35 Lightning II center wing assembly production lines. With 3.4 million square feet of production space, some of history's most iconic aircraft have been built in Marietta, including the F-22 Raptor, C-5 Galaxy/C-5M Super Galaxy, P-3 Orion and the C-141 Starlifter.
