LONG BEACH >> Linda Foster pressed her pneumatic glue gun against two metal plates and painted a ribbon of black sealant along the last major airplane wing that will be produced in the Boeing C-17 factory in Long Beach.

Foster is one of 22 people that make up team 517, the group that assembles the main beam or “spar” of the Boeing C-17 wing. Team 517, which was officially dissolved Tuesday, is the first group to complete its work on No. 279, the last of 10 C-17s that are making their way through the yearlong assembly line.
