56249498.jpgKFOR reports nearly a year and half since the last Trascendavoy rolled off the assembly line, GM is finally unloading selling their Oklahoma City Assembly Plant. In what might be termed a mini government bail-out, Oklahoma County Commissioners are asking voters to approve a $25m bond to purchase the defunct plant. Oklahoma County has talked extensively with Tinker Air Force Base officials in the hopes Tinker will lease the gigantic space to expand the OKC Air Logistic Depot (an aircraft refurbishment center where KC-135 Tankers, B-2 Stealth Bombers, B-1's, and my own E-3 Sentry AWACS are stripped and rebuilt to fly again). Lets hope for my own safety, the Ghosts of GM Past have left the building so Tinker doesn't rebuild my jet to TrailBlazer levels of quality. Oklahoma County residents vote on the bond on May 13th.
