Riley: Mobile will build tankers

MOBILE, Ala. - Alabama Gov. Bob Riley told some 250 real estates agents that Air Force refueling tankers will be built in Mobile. "Absolutely," predicted the governor. Northrop/EADS won the contract in February and planned to build them in Mobile, but Boeing's protest was upheld. Early this month the Pentagon decided to scrap the competition and let the next administration decide. (Source: Mobile Press Register, 09/26/08)
