Boeing announced today it chose North Charleston, South Carolina over Washington to build its newest line of 787 Dreamliner airplanes. The new manufacturing aerospace plant will provide 4000 new jobs and over $700million of investment into the area. A big boost to a state that has been dredging in double digit unemployment.
