Can anyone help please?

I'm running a project on F-16 production in Europe with a main focus around the canopy, the way its sealed and where this is all assembled.

I see TAI, SAMSUNG, Fokker and SABCA all assemble the aircraft but is the canopy completed at the same sites? Also who are the main MRO players for this type of equipment?

Thanks in advance.

The sealant used. I think PPG started supplying the F-16 in 1974 at its Sylmar plant in CA (bought over Texstars last year).
