That's the word from Jon Ostrower at Flight Blogger. Ostrower's scoop comes courtesy of a release from Snohomish Country Executive Aaron Reardon.
The Boeing Company's announcement to locate a second 787 line in North Charleston, S.C., signals that other states want what we have - a strong manufacturing base. We must all work together and fight to keep it. Washington state must make a conscious decision to do whatever is reasonably necessary to aggressively compete to keep the jobs we have and grow our economy or risk more losses.The announcement follows Tweets about mandatory meetings for Boeing managers in both Everett and Charleston at 2 PM West Coast time. Boeing's denying it's made a decision yet, but you usually don't call together all your people just to tell them you need more time. More to follow.
