The Cliff Beach Plant is an airplane assembly facility built by Cerdani Aircraft Works in Cliff Beach, Cerdani Democratic Republic. It sits at the southern corner of Cliff Beach Field next to the main passenger terminal and includes one of the largest buildings in the world by volume at 13,385,378 m3 (472,370,319 cu ft) and covers 98.7 acres (39.9 ha). The factory was built in 1971 for the DF-160, the first Cerdani Aircraft Works aircraft to achieve significant overseas orders and has since been expanded several times to accommodate newer airliners and production lines.
