Mobile still on the prowl

MOBILE, Ala. -- You might think landing an Airbus jetliner plant would be enough to satisfy any economic development appetite. But you would be wrong. The folks who run the nearly 1,700-acre Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley, site of the future A320 final assembly line, are quick to point out there are still 200 acres and 850,000 square feet of building space available. And there's also space at Mobile Regional Airport. Alabama's port city is still on the prowl. (Source: Gulf Coast Aerospace Corridor newsletter, 03/11/14)
