A delegation of Alabama leaders is in London to attend the Farnborough International Air Show one week after Airbus announced it would open an aircraft assembly plant in Mobile.

The 80-member state delegation led by Gov. Robert Bentley will attend a reception Sunday hosted by the Aerospace Alliance, a trade association representing the states of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi.

Airbus plans to build A320 jets at Mobile's Brookley Aeroplex, giving the company its first production site in the United States.

Aerospace Alliance Chairman Neal Wade tells the Mobile Press-Register that interest in the reception has increased since the Airbus announcement.
