(KFWB 980) — We dig deeper into Boeing and their C-17 assembly operation adjacent to the Long Beach Airport.

When you factor in the entire supply chain across 44 states, the C-17 sustains more than 30,000 jobs — 3,000 in Long Beach alone.

That translates to an annual economic impact of $5.8 billion. So we took a look inside the giant hangars to see what’s going on in there.
