Alabama team goes to airshow

MOBILE, Ala. -- A delegation of business and community leaders from the greater Mobile area will attend next week's Farnborough International Airshow in the United Kingdom. The group will tout the Mobile area's logistical and infrastructure assets. Mobile is already well-known as the city that landed an Airbus A320 final assembly line, but it has multiple aerospace and aviation companies in both Mobile and Baldwin counties, including industry giant United Technologies. The delegation includes Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson, and representatives of the Mobile County Commission, Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce, Mobile Airport Authority, Alabama Port Authority and Baldwin County Economic Development Alliance.
