Charlotte doesn't belong on this list.

I'd add Long Beach and Wichita, KS to the list.

I-270 between Washington, D.C., and Frederick is sometimes called "Satellite Alley". Lots of aerospace companies in the Baltimore/Washington metro area, including Lockheed-Martin and Northrop-Grumman.

The aerospace industry covers a wide spectrum, kinda tough to pin it down to just a city. I'm gonna toss in So CA into the mix.

I hope that includes The Mojave Air and Space Port: Mojave Air and Space Port | Innovation Flies Here. It's a fascinating place - part large aircraft storage facility, part space industry r&d. When you're there, you have the feeling that you're simultaneously experiencing aviation's past & present.
