Hi,

Just found this posted on the BBC site. The Airbus factory in North Wales has been granted permission to expand in readiness as it says to produce the wings for the A350.

Wonder what this is all about? Help boost production? How? Free coffee for the workers?

Those who believe otherwise are consumed by an ideology
That is impervious to evidence

The £5.2 million is to train new workers as per this article. 650 new jobs are being created at Broughton alone for A350, and existing workers will also need additional training for working with a greater proportion of composite than they presently do.
7late7, A3latey, Sukhoi Superlate... what's going on?
