N. Carolina out of the running for Boeing 777X plant

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Boeing has decided not to build its newest plant in North Carolina.

State officials said the aircraft builder told them Friday that sites in Charlotte, Greensboro and Kinston were out of the running as the site for a plant to build the new 777X airliner.

At least 22 states presented Boeing with proposals to build the plane. Boeing is letting the sites know as they fall out of the process. The company hopes to choose the site for its newest plant in early 2014.

Gov. Pat McCrory says North Carolina won’t land every project and made a bid that fit the state’s needs and provided a good return on its possible investment.
