Boeing announced the company has chosen its North Charleston, S.C., facility as the location for a second final assembly site for the 787 Dreamliner program. Boeing’s new facility, which will be adjacent to the existing plant in North Charleston, will bring hundreds of millions of dollars in capital investment and in excess of 4,000 new jobs with an untold number of immediate construction jobs. “Establishing a second 787 assembly line in Charleston will expand our production capability to meet the market demand for the airplane,” said Jim Albaugh, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “This decision allows us to continue building on the synergies we have established in South Carolina with Boeing Charleston and Global Aeronautica,” he said, adding that this move will strengthen the company’s competitiveness and sustainability and help it grow for the long term. Boeing’s Charleston facility performs fabrication, assembly and systems installation for the 787 aft fuselage sections. Nearby, Global Aeronautica, in which Boeing owns a 50 percent stake, joins and integrates the 787 fuselage sections from other structural partners. The facility will also have the capability to support the testing and delivery of the airplanes.

Seaplane flying is the most beautifull thing in aviation, but it's also a very demanding passion. This DHC-3 single Otter crashed in the Biscarrosse seaplane festival because the landing gear wasn't retracted. Nobody was injured, and they escape the plane safely within1 minute. The pilot is a very experimented captain with more than 17 000 flying hours (if I remember). I post this video for only one reason : safety. I hope that seaplane pilots will think about it twice next time. It's a sad video, but with a happy end! Go every two years to Biscarrosse seaplane festival in France, it's a wonderfull moment during 4 days!
