You can bet your last dollar that if Boeing went through all the trouble of re-locating it, it would be to go to a non-union environment,,,,

and also, Boeing would be able to build a new state-of-the-art facility, not keep trying to renovate the old factories at Everett.

Capital costs are going to be huge, no matter where. Boeing yesterday after the vote announced intentions to build a 1.2 million SF facility to manufacture the composite wing.

They apparently can’t transport the wing hundreds or thousands of miles to where the fuselage is put together.

This is a major, major deal. I’m kinda thinking Boeing realized it tossed snake eyes on the 787 (hereafter called “the Edsel of airplanes”), and is positioning the 777-X to be SOA for passenger aircraft in the future.
