(AP) Boeing says much of the design work for a major overhaul of its 777 will be done outside of its main commercial airplane base in the Seattle area.


The plan laid out in a memo to Boeing workers on Wednesday confirms suspicions that Boeing has been looking to move design work to engineers elsewhere.


The company says much of the design work will be done in Charleston, S.C.; Huntsville, Ala.; Long Beach, Calif.; Philadelphia and St. Louis. Some work will also be done in Moscow.


The memo says no decisions have been made about how much of the plane will be built around Seattle. The current 777 is assembled in Everett, just north of Seattle.


Boeing is expected to formally offer the plane for sale by the end of 2013.
