The Airbus factory near Chester is celebrating an historic finance deal that's led to the sale of an aircraft to China.
The arrangement between the UK and China was welcomed by Chancellor George Osborne on a visit to the Broughton, near Chester.
100,000 jobs around the UK rely on the success of Airbus, he said.
The Chancellor added that it's a "great example of how the Northern Powerhouse can grow in strength".
European aerospace giant Airbus, which has a factory in Broughton, has warned of job losses and "huge" economic risks if Britain votes to leave the European Union in a referendum to be held by 2017.
A decision to quit the EU would raise doubts about Airbus's long-term future investments in the country, according to President of Airbus Group UK, Paul Kahn. Airbus employs 16,000 people in the UK.
Mr Kahn added that the long-term economic risks of a potential British exit were "huge".
When we fly abroad we probably give very little thought about how the aircraft we're in was made.
Well here's an insight - and it's not any old plane, it's one of the newest - the Airbus 380, the world's biggest passenger jet.
