LA PROPOINT TO INSTALL F/A-18 FIGTHTER JET AT CA. SCIENCE CENTER

Display of Iconic Fighter Plane Takes Center Stage at Renowned Museum

Sun Valley, Calif. September 11, 2014 – – LA ProPoint, a leader in the design, engineering, fabrication, and installation of stage and show systems, is installing an iconic F/A-18 fighter jet on the grounds of the California Science Center this Friday, September 12.

The Science Center, which is home to the world-famous Space Shuttle Endeavor, hired LA ProPoint to manage nearly all aspects of the aircraft installation. LA ProPoint disassembled and transported the F/A-18 from Salt Lake City to its fabrication shop in Southern California. The company then cosmetically refurbished the legendary jet and prepared it for eventual mounting on a pedestal just outside the Science Center.

For the physical installation, LA ProPoint poured the slab and installed the pedestal. The F/A-18 is being transported from the company’s shop to the Science Center and will be mounted and unveiled on Friday.

“We were honored to collaborate with the California Science Center on this important project,” said Jim Hartman, Vice President of LA ProPoint. “The Center already is home to some of the most iconic aircraft and other elements of aviation history. With our help, the storied F/A-18 will join this heritage and provide years of amazement to museum visitors.”
