Could The Boeing Company be coming to Huntsville?

Posted: Updated:

Alabama has five days to convince The Boeing Company to set up shop in the state.

Alabama must respond to Boeing's request for proposals for its aircraft assembly plant by Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Huntsville is one of several cities that are being considered to land the deal.

Governor Robert Bentley believes Boeing will consider more than just incentives.

"I think that our workforce is second-to-none," Bentley said. "The number of engineers we have in Huntsville, I have heard, not per capita, but that there are more engineers in Huntsville than any place in the world."

Bentley would not comment on whether there are more meetings scheduled with Boeing.
