 MCDONNELL AIRCRAFT WILL PRESENT CERTIFICATION
 TO KILLDEER MOUNTAIN MANUFACTURING
 ST. LOUIS, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonnell Aircraft Co. (NYSE: MD) will present one of its highest supplier quality certifications to Killdeer Mountain Mfg. at 10 a.m., Aug. 14, during a grand opening celebration for the company's new 20,000-square-foot plant at 300 Rodeo Dr., Killdeer, N.D.
 Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., Rep. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., and Mitchell Bohn, North Dakota state director of economic development and finance, are scheduled to attend the grand opening celebration and the McDonnell Aircraft presentation.
 William L. Stowers, vice president of procurement at McDonnell Aircraft, will present the company's bronze-level preferred supplier certification to Don Hedger, president of Killdeer Mountain Mfg.
 Killdeer Mountain Mfg. earned a bronze-level certification for consistently high quality work on electrical subassemblies it makes for the F-15 Eagle and F/A-18 Hornet fighters, and for the T-45 Goshawk trainer jet. Killdeer has been manufacturing electrical subassemblies for McDonnell Aircraft since 1991.
 To earn a bronze-level certification, suppliers must demonstrate the ability to maintain a 90 percent to 95 percent on-time delivery record for six months, and a 95 percent to 98 percent acceptance quality rate for the parts or components they deliver over a 12-month period.
 Suppliers also are examined and rated on several key business practices, such as management, quality, delivery, cost, technology and customer support. Suppliers qualifying for bronze-level certification also must have a documented plan leading to successful implementation of statistical process control. McDonnell Aircraft began its preferred supplier certification program in 1989.
