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?
Inspiration, move me brightly! Light the song with sense and color.
Hold away despair, more than this I will not ask.
Faced with mysteries dark and vast, statements just seem vain at last.
Some rise, some fall, some climb, to get to Terrapin!

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?
