It may be a longshot – but it’s worth the shot.
The venerable Boeing aircraft assembly plant in Long Beach apparently is in the running to build the new generation 777X jetliner. Just the prospect of this development is astonishing, given that the plant had recently rolled off the line the final C-17 built for the US Air Force. The company had said the assembly line would be shuttered for good in 2015.
That could all change with the recent announcement that the Machinists Union in Washington had rejected a tentative labor agreement that would have brought the work to the Seattle area.
