Boeing officials announced Wednesday that North Charleston, S.C., will become home to a second assembly line for the 787 Dreamliner -- the company's first such facility for commercial aircraft outside Washington state. South Carolina offered some $170 million in incentives, and workers there cooperated by voting to decertify the International Association of Machinists, the union responsible for a crippling strike last year at Boeing's plant in Everett, Wash. Boeing said the new facility will help it meet production goals for the much-delayed 787.
