South Carolina lawmakers, Boeing officials, and a couple thousand Boeing workers joined together at the North Charleston 787 Jetliner Final Assembly facility today for a special ribbon cutting that marks a new beginning.
Today is a tremendous blessing to me and also my family and the state of South Carolina, and Charleston. Being able to open up a new start, a new beginning. Being a first premiere final assembly and delivery, to deliver the 787 right from South Carolina–Charleston, South Carolina.
It could be my family, myself, or you or your family. So, I have to do my very best of my god-given ability to make this airplane complete and perfect.
The 787 Final Assembly facility sits on more than 640,000 square feet and is 1,040 feet long by 618 feet wide. The building consists of 10 acres of solar laminate film that will produce 2.6 megawatts of energy.
For Gaither–the facility marks a new beginning. “It’s just a great day, a wonderful experience.”
