Aero-News Quote of the Day
"Last year taught us something: while we all know about
our long tradition of aerospace excellence and the quality and
skillsets of our workforce, obviously some parts of the country
(Kansas and Washington State), might not be aware. We are going to
educate them, and you are going to help us. We will work together
to promote our region's many assets. We will work together to
advocate for policies, programs and specific aerospace projects on
the local, state and national level. The programs we attract will
in turn attract suppliers, bringing even more jobs and development.
Our first initiative is to win the KC-45 tanker, our first lesson
is Geography -- Mobile, Alabama and the Gulf Coast States are part
of the U.S. and our jobs are American."
