Seattle Newspaper Reporting That Boeing Chooses Washington over Arkansas Sites

December 5, 2003 - Posted at 10:13 a.m. CDT

 

SEATTLE, AR - A Seattle newspaper is reporting that a Boeing Company executive has decided a new jet should be assembled in Everett, Washington.

Officials in Arkansas submitted several possible sites for the plant where the 7E7 Dreamliner jet is to be assembled, including a Region 8 location at the Arkansas Aeroplex (former Eaker Air Force Base) in Blytheville.

The Seattle Times says in a copyright article today that the Boeing team chose Everett, where Boeing already builds 747's, 767's and 777's.

A Boeing spokesman declined comment on the report and wouldn't say whethere the company has settled on a site recommendation.

The company has announced that parts of the wing for the new jet will be built in Tulsa, Oklahoma, bringing at least 500 new jobs to that area.
