Our maher kawash is working 4 you tonight with how this can help the moses lake community.
00;52;47the grant county international airport is home to more than 80 boeing 737 airplanes... At least for now.
The planes will be here until they are ready to be delivered and in the meantime more jobs are on the way to moses lake.11 almost 500 boeing 737 max planes are grounded across the globe.
More than 80 of them are right in moses lake at the grant county international airport.
00:38:16"boeing came to us a few months ago letting us know that they were needing to store more aircraft than they can support on the west side of the mountains."07the problem with these aircrafts isnt anything physical.
Its a software issue ... And boeing is expected to hire a few hundred people to fix that issue in moses lake.
00:39:24 it's an opportunity for jobs in this town, it's a shot in the arm for the economy of the airport but also for the city and the region as these people are staying in the hotels and eating at the restaurants and getting to know the community a little bit better.
12mueller says they'll need people with faa certification or with technical backgrounds.and until that software issue is fixed, each plane gets its own special treatment.
00:42:26 each plane gets very individual attention, everything down to protecting the tires to make sure that they are like i said kept at peak performance so that way when they turn the keys over to the owners they'll be ready to put them into service right away and start making money for the airlines."14 lltag00;54;31the airport doesnt know exactly how long these planes will be here but they say the goal is to get some out before the end of the yearreporting from the grant county international airport, im maher kawash 4 news now.
