that means more jobs and money for the state. this victory was not an easy one. only 51% of the machinists approved the deal. we spoke with jay inslee. he explained why the vote was so close. >> this was a decision where people had to face prospect of job loss. to prevent that required they had to consent to things they have been fighting for for decades. they made the decision to move forward to build this jet and its derivative models for decades to come. that is going to make an enormous economic impact for the state of washington. the carbon fiber wing represents the cutting edge future of aerospace and a whole host of other products as well. it was a decision to move forward to keep washington state as the center of aerospace in the world. we have several decades of

it was fast, comfortable, and functional. it was able to take off and land on short runways at regional airports. none of that matters now. the dc-9 burns too much fuel. they are also noisy. throughout the 1960's, the dc-9 was modified with the last one built in 1982. pilots have said that the plane was a joy to fly, but it made you earn your pay. there are no electronic displays or fight control computers on a dc-9. say farewell to the dc-9, but it's lineage lives on a bit. the next time you step aboard a boeing 717, know that both airplanes were derived from the dc-9. it is a plane with a legacy.
