Mississippi Gulf Coast “aerospace corridor” is taking off.

Economic developers from the Mississippi Gulf Coast attended what I think is one of the coolest air shows in the world –   the Farnborough International Air Show.  (Just for the record, I did not attend.)   Click here to read a Mississippi Press article about their trip.

The airshow, established in 1948 and held every other year, has become a popular spot for aircraft debuts, and it drew more than 1,000 exhibitors, 263,000 attendees and $42 billion in announced sales In 2006.
