The Northern Virginia campus will “support various corporate functions and specialize in advanced airplane development and autonomous systems,” Boeing said. The company also plans a research & technology hub in the area “to harness and attract engineering and technical capabilities,” it said. Shares of Boeing dropped more than 4% on Thursday, swept by steep declines for the S&P 500 index SPX, -3.56% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -3.12%. Boeing is a Dow component.
