Britain's #1 exporter and Europe's largest defense company, British Aerospace (BAe) is also involved in civil aviation, automobiles (Rover), construction and civil engineering (Netherlands-based Ballast Nedam), and property development (Arlington Securities). BAe is a 20% partner in Airbus Industrie, designing and building wings for the European aerospace consortium. Bae was formed in 1960 when the British Parliment attempted to save the UK's Aviation Industry by merging Hawker-Siddley Aviation and British Aircraft Corporation (BAC). Hawker-Siddeley has roots in the aviation industry as far back as 1910 and attained fame in the 1960s for developing the Harrier fighter. BAC also has roots back to about 1910 and was Aerospatiale's partner in developing the supersonic Concorde.
