The Future Of Aerospace In Wichita

Will 2,100 aerospace workers find other jobs in Wichita once Boeing closes its plant next year?

Thursday at 11:40 a.m. on Up to Date: Steve Kraske talks with Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer about Wednesday's big news that Boeing is pulling out of city after nearly 85 years.

We examine reaction from elected officials and workers, and talk about the future of the industry, and whether or not other aerospace employers including Spirit AeroSystems, Cessna, Hawker Beechcraft, Bombardier Learjet, and Airbus might be able to provide jobs for displaced workers.
