More of XCOR's space launch vehicle to be build outside of California

I talked about this in my blog (that I accidentally wiped out!). XCOR has essentially moved out of CA to TX.
California is losing on all fronts. Thousands of well-paid people and hundreds of tax paying companies are leaving California each week. Mojave's Air & Space Port is in the process of losing even more business.

The XCOR Aerospace company announced that the Lynx Mark I suborbital reusable launch vehicle (RLV) wing strake assemblies will be manufactured by FiberDyne Advanced Composites of Tukwila, Washington.

The wing strakes are critical structural components that attach the Lynx fuselage to the wings and hold kerosene fuel, attachment points for the main landing gear, and bays for the vehicle's reaction control thrusters.
