Boeing will outsource key Dreamliner components to the UAE

So much for American jobs... major sections of the Dreamliner (787) will be built by near slave labor from the sub-continent in the UAE.

Mubadala Aerospace yesterday announced a US$1 billion (Dh3.67bn) contract to build major sections for the Boeing 777 and 787 Dreamliner airliners at its Strata Manufacturing plant in Al Ain.

The announcement, which dominated yesterday's Global Aerospace Summit in Abu Dhabi, makes Mubadala the Arab world's first direct supplier of composites to the US aircraft maker. Mubadala Aerospace is a division of Mubadala Development, a strategic investment company owned by the Abu Dhabi Government.
