LEAP: This image of a LEAP 1-A engine shows one of the new engines that will feature parts milled at the Hooksett GE Aviation facility. Specifically, blisks made in Hooksett will be used in the engine making it lighter and more fuel efficient. The first blisks made from the Hooksett facility for this engine are expected to be completed by the fall.
GE makes the LEAP
The newly developed LEAP passenger-jet engines that will power Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s will be taking to the air with parts milled in the Granite State. The engine requires the use of blisks, a bladed metal disc, and as the primary milling source for GE Aviation, the Hooksett plant will produce those blisks.

A Texan who spent a month as a house-sitter in Lyndeborough fondly recalls her time as a temporary Granite Stater, including a moving 2011 Memorial Day.
How Memorial Day started
Thousands of New Hampshire families were mourning their sons killed on battlefields far from home when Gov. Natt Head issued the first proclamation of Decoration Day: “Let us tenderly and lovingly lay the flowers of early spring upon the graves of our sons, and place above their ashes the flag, which, living, they covered with imperishable luster....” It was 1881, 16 years after the Civil War had ended, and the governor asked the “whole population” to “lay aside their usual avocations, and come together to consecrate this day forever to the cause of popular freedom, by eulogistic speech, martial airs, and solemn procession.” That was the beginning of what the state now observes as Memorial Day.
