WHAT:   Celebrate production of the largest commercial airplane in
        the world (the Airbus A380) and its impact in supporting 
        American jobs, including increases at Alcoa Mill Products' 
        Davenport Works facility.

WHY:    The Davenport Works celebration of the new Airbus A380, a
        555-seat aircraft, is the second of three planned by Alcoa and
        Airbus (the first was held last month in Torrance, California)
        to hail the creation and retention of American jobs in the 
        development of the A380.

VISUAL OPPORTUNITIES:

        --  Hundreds of Alcoa Mill Products employees

BACKGROUND:

        The Airbus A380 features more new Alcoa materials and products
        than any other aircraft on which the company has been involved
        (there's not been a plane since the Wright Brothers that does 
        not use Alcoa technology or products). Alcoa products are 
        literally used from nose to tail on the Airbus A380, beginning
        with forward landing gear, support structure to forgings for 
        the horizontal and vertical stabilizers to 1 million Alcoa 
        Fastening System fasteners holding it all together.
