Alabama Governor Robert Bentley said he’s getting ready to make another trip to promote Alabama to overseas business people.

This will once again be another trip related to Airbus.

The governor said he’s going to the Farnborough International Air Show in Hampshire, England.

Fox Ten travelled to the air show two years ago.

It’s held in even numbered years.

Governor Bentley said his main aim will be convincing suppliers for Airbus to come to Alabama.

He said  “I will be there. That will be about two months, three months from now, but, I’ll be traveling there.  Last year I visited with 40 CEO’s, 40 different companies.  We’ll be doing the same thing again this year.”

The Governor said he was impressed with what he saw at the Airbus site while flying into Mobile.
