Airbus Officials In Mobile Monday Morning

MOBILE, Alabama -

The tents are up and the countdown is on. We're less than 24 hours away from the Airbus groundbreaking at Brookley Field in Mobile.

"You're going to see people who have a real interest in this area, not just Mobile but the entire Gulf Coast," said Mayor Sam Jones.

Monday morning Airbus officials and other dignitaries will be in the Port City. The last minute preps are underway.

"They'll be people from not only all over the country, but from all over the world and what follows after that is going to be extraordinary, we can't even tell at this point how many people will be coming as it unfolds as the final assembly line becomes developed," said Win Hallett, President of the Mobile Chamber of Commerce.

Once the final assembly line is complete the Port City is in for a big economic boost.

"The county is a partner in all of this, bringing the suppliers, bringing Airbus here the county is going to be a major player in that we're helping with the infrastructure needs right now," said Merceria Ludgood, Mobile County Commissioner.

It may not look like much right now, but by 2015 the property at Brookley Field will be completely transformed. The first Airbus U.S. production facility will be located in Mobile, Alabama.
