Kansas should be hard to miss at Farnborough

Good for Gov. Sam Brownback and Commerce Secretary Pat George for planning to join representatives of the Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition in promoting Kansas-made aircraft at the Farnborough International Airshow in England Monday through July 15. Wichita’s aircraft makers are Kansas’ biggest exporter, representing more than 18 percent of all exports from the state. The bigger and more prominent the presence of Wichita’s planemakers at such an international air show, the louder the message will be about how the Air Capital of the World can serve the world marketplace for aircraft.
