Last summer, the city of Mobile and the gulf south were stunned by the news the Air Force had chosen Boeing over EADS to build refueling tankers. The work would have done in our neighboring city.
Fast forward one year. This time, the news is just as stunning. Airbus, a subsidiary of EADS, has chosen Mobile to locate it's first production facility on American soil, building as many as 4600 commercial passenger jets over the next 20 years.
That means three 3,000 construction jobs and 1,000 permanent jobs once the $600 million plant goes on-line in three years. It also means that Mississippians could very well reap some of those employment benefits.
For example, about 20% of workers at Ingalls commute from Alabama. A similar scenario with our workers going to Mobile could happen with the Airbus plant. We congratulate the city of Mobile on landing Airbus.
Now we hope the economic power of that new facility will spread across the entire region. As the saying goes, a rising tide lifts all boats, no matter what state they're in.
