Bell Helicopter in Fort Worth is going global. Monday marked the start of a more than $1 billion transformation for the facility.
Gov. Rick Perry made a stop at the headquarters to speak at the groundbreaking ceremony. Rep. Kay Granger, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley and Mayor Betsy Price also attended the ceremony.
In a statement released Monday, Bell Helicopter announced the business plans to invest around $230 million in the facilities.
However, before things got under way, WFAA's Wyatt Goolsby took Instant Live 8 inside to get an early look before the celebrations.
