IAI opens second Miss. plant


A U.S. subsidiary of Israel Aircraft Industries began manufacturing unmanned aerial vehicles in Mississippi.

Stark Aerospace, which manufactures the Hunter UAV, opened a new facility Monday in Starkville. Attending the ceremony were U.S. Reps. Chip Pickering and Roger Wicker, both Mississippi Republicans. The Hunter is already in use in the Iraq war.

Stark also has a facility in Columbus, Miss.
