Finmeccanica-AgustaWestland is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Westland Aircraft Works' formation in Yeovil and the many aeronautical achievements that have been made during 100 years of continuous aircraft manufacturing on the site. Established in 1915, Westland has produced many famous fixed wing aircraft designs such as the Whirlwind, Welkin, Wapiti and Lysander before focusing on helicopter production and later on its own designs such as the Lynx and AW101. In 2001 AgustaWestland was formed bringing together two aviation names and, since 2004, it has been wholly owned by Finmeccanica.
