LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Governor Mike Beebe travels overseas hoping to bring International Aerospace Business to Arkansas.

The Arkansas Economic Development Commission and Arkansas World Trade Center traveled along with him.

Their first stop -- London -- where they'll attend one of the world's biggest airshows.

Exports in the aerospace industry from Arkansas totaled nearly $2 billion last year.

The majority of those exports came from Dassault Falcon.

The group has not disclosed any information about the businesses they hope to persuade to come to Arkansas.
