Northrop Corporation
Northrop Corporation

Northrop Corporation was a leading United States aircraft manufacturer from its formation in 1939 until its merger with Grumman to form Northrop Grumman in 1994. The company is known for its development of the flying wing design, although only a few of these have entered service.

Northrop still sought his own company, and so in 1939 established the "Northrop Corporation" in nearby Hawthorne, California, a site located by co-founder Moye Stephens. The corporation lasted until 1994. It was there that the P-61 night fighter, the Flying Wings (B-35 and YB-49), the F-89 interceptor, the Snark intercontinental cruise missile and the F-5 Freedom Fighter jet fighter (and its derivative, the successful T-38 trainer) were developed and built.
