First Airbus hires in Germany to train

The first group of workers hired for the Airbus final assembly line being built in Mobile, Ala., are in Hamburg, Germany, for training. The group, which has trained in Mobile for the past two months, includes four Alabama natives who will spend at least 10 months in Hamburg. The $600 million assembly line in Mobile will open in 2015 and will eventually have 1,000 workers. It will eventually produce between 40 and 50 aircraft each year. (Source:, 01/16/14)
