Item 7.  Financial Statements, Pro Forma Information and Exhibits

         On November 12, 2002, Curtiss-Wright Corporation ("Curtiss-Wright")
filed a Current Report on Form 8-K to report its acquisition of substantially
all the assets of the Electro-Mechanical Division ("EMD") of Westinghouse
Government Services Company LLC ("Westinghouse"), a subsidiary of Washington
Group International. Pursuant to Item 7 of Form 8-K, Curtiss-Wright indicated
that it would file certain financial information under Item 7 of Form 8-K no
later than the date required. This Amendment is filed to report that such
financial information is not required under Item 7 of Form 8-K since the
acquired assets and operating income of EMD do not achieve required reporting


Except for historical information, this Current Report on Form 8-K may be deemed
to contain "forward looking" information. Examples of forward looking
information include, but are not limited to, (a) projections of or statements
regarding return on investment, future earnings, interest income, other income,
earnings or loss per share, investment mix and quality, growth prospects,
capital structure and other financial terms, (b) statements of plans and
objectives of management, (c) statements of future economic performance, and (d)
statements of assumptions, such as economic conditions underlying other
statements. Such forward looking information can be identified by the use of
forward looking terminology such as "believes," "expects," "may," "will,"
"should," "anticipates," or the negative of any of the foregoing or other
variations thereon or comparable terminology, or by discussion of strategy. No
assurance can be given that the future results described by the forward looking
information will be achieved. Such statements are subject to risks,
uncertainties, and other factors which could cause actual results to differ
materially from future results expressed or implied by such forward looking
information. Such statements in this Report include, without limitation, those
contained in Item 2, Acquisition or Disposition of Assets and Item 7, Financial
Statements, Pro Forma Information and Exhibits. Important factors that could
cause the actual results to differ materially from those in these
forward-looking statements include, among other items, (i) a reduction in
anticipated orders; (ii) an economic downturn; (iii) changes in the competitive
marketplace and/or customer requirements; (iv) changes in the need for
additional machinery and equipment and/or in the cost for the expansion of the
Corporation's operations; (v) changes in the competitive marketplace and/or
customer requirements; (vi) a change in government funding; (vii) an inability
to perform customer contracts at anticipated cost levels; (viii) political
conditions in the United States and other countries; (ix) labor relation issues;
and (x) other factors that generally affect the business of aerospace, marine,
and industrial companies.



                  Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934, the Registrant has caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
