A plane deal

Boeing CEO Harry Stonecipher says the airframe giant is nearing a deal to sell its Wichita and Tulsa plants. Workers, said Stonecipher, should get the word in 10 to 20 days; he says there is no indication that there will be layoffs.

Tulsa's Boeing facility was originally owned by Douglas; during World War II, its products included the B-24 Liberator.

Toronto-based Onex Corp. is rumored to be the prospective buyer.
