WHY:      Alcoa's strategic partnership with Airbus has enabled Alcoa
          and its employees help our customer design and build the 
          A380. When the A380 makes its first flight, it will lift off
          with more new Alcoa products and solutions than any other 
          aircraft in Alcoa's 100+ years of aviation history. These 
          advanced products from Alcoa have set new standards in the 
          performance of advanced aerospace aluminum, super alloys 
          and fastening systems.
          Airbus spent $6.9 billion with US suppliers last year, 
          supporting more than 140,000 US jobs.
