More than 100 aircraft were completed in August this year, bringing the
total value for the UK industry to £17bn since the start of the year.

During the second-highest August on record this year, 114 aircraft were
delivered.

The backlog of undelivered aircraft now stands at 13,425, which is
estimated to be worth up to £210bn.
