GOOD NEWS: Aerospace and aviation is a dominant industry in Alabama. Our state has a long history of supporting the Department of Defense, both economically as well as in terms of devout appreciation for men and women in uniform. If Bell wins the project and can expand its existing facility in Ozark to assemble the 407 GXi helicopter, this would be a tremendous economic boost for the Dale County community as well as the Wiregrass region. #Our67 #DaleCounty
