Watch video of warplane that could be built in Jacksonville

Here's a video of the A-29 Super Tucano, which Embraer wants to build in Jacksonville. 

Nevada-based Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) and Embraer, which has its U.S. headquarters in Ft. Lauderdale and recently selected Jacksonville International Airport as its location to build the light attack aircraft, are jointly bidding on a U.S. Department of Defense LAS contract. If they are awarded the contract in June, the aircraft, the A-29 Super Tucano, will be built in Jacksonville, creating high quality engineering and technical jobs.

“We hope Embraer and Sierra Nevada Corporation will receive the contract to build the Super Tucano aircraft in Jacksonville,” said Wally Lee, president of the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We would welcome the capital investment and creation of jobs this contract would bring to our region.”
