After much anticipation, Boeing has announced they will be building their second assembly line for the Boeing 787 in Charleston, SC. As a Seattle native, this comes as disappointing news. The company will still build some of the 787’s at their Everett facility. Both cities and states have been negotiating hard to win the rights to build the facility. Flight Blogger reports that talks between Boeing and the unions broke down late yesterday, causing speculation that Boeing would choose South Carolina.

Once the dust settles on this, we will take a look at why this happened and what this means for the future of Everett, and the production of new planes. Until then, please feel free to follow Flight Blogger for up to the minute information.
