ST. LOUIS (AP) - Boeing Co. will move the headquarters for its defense unit from St. Louis to the Washington, D.C., area.

The move announced Tuesday by Chicago-based Boeing affects about a dozen top executives and some support staff. It will not impact the day-to-day operations for defense workers in St. Louis.

A Boeing spokesman told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2gxDuL6 ) the move reflects the company’s desire to be closer to those in power in Washington, and is unrelated to recent criticism from President-elect Donald Trump over the potential cost of the Air Force One presidential jet program.
