    Spirit Aerosystems is the worlds largest supplier of commercial airplan assemblies. Not Spirit Airlines. This is a company that supplies teir one quality parts to big name airplane manufactures, such as Boeing and Airbus to name a few. You might want to check your facts before you slam something that is going to be great for the Kinston area.

    maybe one can afford to go back to school to learn how to spell if one gets a job at this airline that robs $ from people.
