SC maritime museum eyes building for Boeing

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A proposed master plan for the Patriots
Point Naval and Maritime Museum in Mount Pleasant includes a
building that museum officials envision as the Boeing Pavilion.
      The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that Patriots Point
Executive Director Mac Burdette says the building could be a place
where Boeing welcomes dignitaries and holds conferences.
      It's part of a plan for new exhibits, condominiums and
restaurants at the attraction that features the aircraft carrier
USS Yorktown.
      However, nobody told Boeing about it. Boeing spokeswoman Candy
Eslinger says the company wasn't contacted and she couldn't discuss
the proposal.
      Boeing is building a $750 million aircraft assembly plant in
North Charleston - the largest industrial investment in state
